Based in the Boston area, Johnny Souza's repetoire consists of popular jazz standards and original jazz compositions.
Souza's forte lies in his prodigious instrumental solos, either on trumpet or flugelhorn he employs smooth, legato lines, his sense of melody and improvisation, ever renewing, does not fall into the trap of excessive cliches and loquaciousness Ernie Santosuosso - Boston Globe Jazz Critic/QuarterNotes Jazz Publication

Trumpeter and vocalist Johnny Souza has an incredibly strong and pure tone as well as a fluid attack that produces well articulated, melodic lines. With his latest release Meet Me In The City, Souza has once again raised the bar of jazz trumpet. Eric Cohen, Music Director -WAER Jazz 88- Syracuse, NY
Johnny Souza's trumpet is superb, clean cut - Johnny's flugelhorn smiles widely and Johnny sings madly - as Ellington might say. Peter Deveber - New England Jazz Alliance
