George A. Johnson Jr. All Stars - All Star Tribute Editor's Pick

George A. Johnson Jr. All Stars — All Star Tribute

Buy it from InSound Get this on iTunes

BCS Records proudly presents “All Star Tribute”, a truly all star jazz event. A full horn section with amazing piano players, guitarists, bassists, and drummers complement the album with wild uptempo improv jazz. Curtis Fuller loads in some juicy trombone along with fellow trombone players Wycliff Gordon and Clifford Adams. George A. Johnson Jr. is the leader of the pack showcasing not only his brilliant vocals but stellar percussion and sweet piano. In addition there’s organist Charles Earland along with fellow pianists Shirley Scott, Rich Budese, Cedar Walton, and Abdullah Ibrahim. Wynton Marsalis takes time to show off his incredible trumpet skills. Big band jazz hasn’t sounded this incredible since the early part of the 20th century

Featured Artist: George A. Johnson Jr

CD Title: George A. Johnson Jr. All Stars Band

Year: 2006

Record Label: BCS Records

Style: BeBop / Hard Bop


George A Johnson Jr., Born in Bridgeton, NJ in 1953, is a third generation drummer. Johnson Jr. began playing drums at the age of five and began playing professionally at the age of 12 in the Atlantic City music scene. As a young adult Elvin Jones and Art Blakey mentored Johnson; in fact, it was Jones who helped Johnson pick out his first set of drums.

Johnson’s latest release is a debut on BCS Records entitled, the George Johnson Jr. All Stars Band. The release features such jazz icons as; Curtis Fuller (trombone), Ceder Walton (piano), Wynton Marsalis (trumpet), Wyclif Gordon (trombone) and Terell Stafford (trumpet). These are only a few names on this BCS debut, guaranteed to get you swinging and get your foot tapping.

The CD begins with a live performance recorded at the Montreax Jazz Festival entitled “Morgan,” a composition penned by organist Charles Earland, which pays homage to the late trumpeter, Lee Morgan. The tune sets an up-tempo pace for the soloist to explore upon with trumpeter Jon Faddis blowing bebop licks as Earland and Johnson keep the pulse driving. Earland contributes a fine performance rich in the tradition with a few sprinklings of modern intervallic structures for added intensity.

“Sleepy,” a nice mid tempo swing, set to an A-A-B-A song form with part of the melody quoting the Flintstones theme song. All of the soloist keep the bop language flowing with ample quotes of various melodies to keep the listeners interest and perhaps to continue the quoting theme that was heard earlier in the melody.

The third track is “Shaw Nuff” fast, with Johnson keeping the pulse light and swinging. The classic be-bop tune is eloquently performed by Shirley Scott (piano), Ed Wiley (tenor sax), Wycliff Gordon (trombone), David Phross (bass), and Terell Stafford (trumpet). “Scrapple,” is a be-bop inspired blues from a set with the Jazz Messengers with Johnson at the drum helm, featuring; Wynton Marsalis (trumpet), Donald Harrison (alto sax), Johnny O’Neal (piano) and Charles Farbrough (bass).

“Little Man,” another feature with the Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers with Johnson on drums, is an up-tempo piece that leaves the land of be-bop to explore the methodology of the post-bop era. Johnson’s solo displays both melodic rhythms and driving passion. “I Didn’t Know What,” displays Johnson’s compositional skills with the post-bop angular melody over a driving undercurrent supplied by Johnson and Farbrough. This song is definitely a highlight of the ten track journey.

“Tuang Gura” finds Abdullah Ibrahim on piano setting up a beautiful ballad. However, Johnson’s scorching brush work is a surprising entrance, and thus beginning the Middle Eastern influenced journey of sounds and exotic musical colors. “My Break Tune” and “Alice in Wonderland” are two more tracks recorded with the Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers with Johnson playing drums.

“Fly Me to the Moon,” features Johnson on vocals and rounds out the release with another dimension of Johnson’s many talents.

George A Johnson Jr. has released a very enjoyable release that features an all-star line up of players, compositions and performances on BCS Records that any avid bebop to post-bebop listener would enjoy.

Tracks: Morgan, Sleepy, Shaw Nuff, Scrapple, Little Man, I Didn't Know, My Theme, Tuang Gura, My Break Tune, Alice in Wonderland, Fly Me To the Moon

George Johnson Jr., All-Star Tribute
BCS Records, 2006

Modern big-band jazz fusion welded tight with the help of whiz-bang chops from top-dog cohorts such as Curtis Fuller on trombone, the piano blitzes of Cedar Walton, and Wynton Marsalis chipping in with his trumpet. Tutored by such drum-kit heavyweights as Elvin Jones and Art Blakey, the multi-talented Johnson has been around since the ’70s, recently finding himself the object of affection in the eyes of rogue acid jazz and hip-hop fans, which should come as no great shock in light of Johnson’s progressive approach. There’s no arguing with an album like this; high-grade all the way, it’s comparable to the Yellowjackets in their prime, whether walking a be-bop high-wire (“Shaw Nuff�, dazzling the Montreax Jazz Festival with warp-speed fusion (“Morgan� or cutting up some prototypical jazz (“I Didn’t Know What,� an original of Johnson’s). Outro track “Fly Me to the Moon� highlights Johnso n’s knack for baritone crooning, a surprise sweet spot that compels the listener to leave the CD in for another go. A-

Hello there AMS.

We have been in touch back and forth a few times since I did two contracts in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where we met!

I am available immediately and back in Canada in between contracts looking for that next great contract. I realize the requirement is for the band members to be in Shanghai, but I wondered if there was any flexibility in that, or whether I could pay one way just to keep working?

Let me know what you think and thank you!
