Johnny Souza

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

“World-class”, mainstream jazz” Charles Matthewson - OCM Newspapers

“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

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
