“Jazz musicians come from all backgrounds, and Perry Joslin is an interesting case. The fortysomething pianist, after dabbling in fusion in the early 1980s, put on a suit and entered the business world. After crunching numbers as a broker, he began a stint at KPMG, the accounting and consulting firm, and within three years was picking colors for a corner office as partner and managing director for the state of Florida . . . ”

Perry Joslin Has Changed My Mind . . .

For a person who doesn’t like jazz Perry Joslin has changed my mind. The way you play the piano and blend the other instruments in is fantastic!! You are now the one and only jazz cds I own please make more.

Get it, you’ll love it!

I have a bit of a music background but of course not to the level of these muscians but enough to recognize the real thing when I hear it. This is outstanding and very enjoyable music.

There is something for everyone on this CD!

Great Purchase

When I heard the snippets I knew I had to own this CD. It’s very mello and as said before, the songs stay in your head. Looking forward to hearing Perry on ‘smooth jazz’ radio stations and in person. Get this—you won’t be disappointed.

Great Story about Dreams, Great Music

Jazz is a live medium, and I’ve never really been taken by listening to recordings by jazz musicians.

Perry Joslin Project has been in my CD player for a week now and I find the music to be very soothing and exciting at the same time. It provides a depth that you can sit an listen to for hours and yet is simplistic enough that it can be background music as you prepare supper (or write a review).

Indigo Falls

Loved Indidgo Falls . . . as the mother who lost a son to a tragedy I could really relate. I have the cd and find Perry to be a unique individual who is truly eccentric. I would love to hear him play in person as well as meet with his inspiration. A nice addition to my library. And I am a cracker.
