Joining Johnson in concert are two fellow Three Keys recording artists - songtress YahZarah and saxophonist Jaared. Being president and CEO of Three Keys Music/Marimelj Entertainment Group, LCC certainly affords Johnson the opportunity to showcase upcoming talent in his live shows.
Check out the track, "Dukin' It Out," which was fashioned as a tribute to R&B/jazz keyboard legend George Duke or "My Funny Valentine," which YahZarah, longtime backup singer for Erykah Badu, nails breathlessly with passion.
Johnson closes the session with two feisty pop tunes with retro flavors - "Pavilion" and "88 Ways to Love."
It's hard not to like Johnson. His true essence and improvisational artistry makes him a sought-after candidate for silky, soulful jazz.
