Jazz bassist-vocalist-songwriter John Lester celebrates his return to the Bay Area after ten years in Europe and two years in NYC with a trio show at Yoshi’s Lounge featuring saxophonist Alex Murzyn (Pete Escovedo, Tommy Igoe Big Band) and drummer Phil Hawkins (Ray Obiedo, Wayne Wallace). John’s new album “Jazz?” sets modern rock songs into a late 1950’s jazz context and was a Top 100 Jazzweek album earlier this year. He is a two-time winner of the West Coast Songwriters “Song of the Year” award.

“His latest album ‘Jazz?’ combines his experience as a singer and songwriter with his love for open ended improvisation. His takes on rock and pop standards, with great jazz sensibility and penchant for swing, make this a wonderful and fresh approach to the canon of improvised music”. - Jim Bennet, KCSM

“A unique blend of jazz and original material from a world class singer-songwriter whose talent and experience make every gig a special one. One of the finest exponents of this art form on the scene today”. - Steve Rubie, The 606 Club, London
