Jeff Johnson

Jazz bassist, Jeff Johnson, received an acoustic guitar at age 9 and began his personal musical journey.

British rock and American soul music were his earliest influences. Early 1960's AM radio became his first “teacher”. Jeff learned the licks and chords of popular music of the time by listening and copying what he heard. At age 15, Jeff took a job offer to play electric bass guitar in a steadily working band which introduced him to jazz. By age 17 he was teaching himself the acoustic double bass, learning onstage with veterans and peers of the fertile “Twin Cities” jazz scene.
