Kogut has appeared extensively in New York City and Boston. He has worked with artists Charles Earland, Clark Terry and J.R. Monterose; recent appearances put him in the company of Drew Gress, Ronnie Burrage, Sheryl Bailey, Randy Sandke and Rick Montalbano. In addition he has led his own trio at numerous venues, including Manhattan’s renowned 55 Bar, Chicago’s Jazz Showcase Nighttown Cleveland, Austin’s Elephant Room, Inntone Fest Austria, and the Red Hook Jazz Festival.
Kogut holds a Master’s Degree from Manhattan School of Music and has served on the jazz faculty of Hamilton College. Hiro Yamanaka of Jazz Guitar Book Japan calls Paul “a great player with a contemporary style” and Cadence Magazine says the music of Paul Kogut “might just be the prescription needed.” The Chicago Tribune says, “There’s no question that Kogut stands as a serious player with a sophisticated sense of harmony and a penchant for meticulously honed motifs.”
