Paul Kogut

"…will appeal to the taciturn jazzbo and the festival twirler alike. Prepare for sensei Kogut's beat-down … and prepare to smile back."
- James Keepnews, journalist

"With admirable support from Montalbano and John's, Kogut is able to cut loose and tastefully explore different avenues. Know It? I Wrote It! is a balanced recording of up tempo and ballad arrangements worthy of repeated listening."
- Randy McElligott -

Paul Kogut has spent time in NYC and Boston and is now based in Chicago. He studied with Pat Martino and Mick Goodrick. He taught at Hamilton College in Utica NY. This CD is thick in the tradition of organ/guitar trios.

Paul spent a period of time playing with one of the Hammond B3 masters, Charles Earland. The music moves from jazz to funk to with originals, standards, and even a Beatles tune. It's jazz, it's
funky, it is real!
