Randy Johnston

Electric blues meets bebop with contemporary influences. An exciting convergence of sounds that has made Randy Johnston one of the hottest jazz guitarists both in the United States and abroad.

January 2006 marked the release of “Randy Johnston Live”, a full length DVD trio recording. This comes on the heels of the audio CD “Is It You?” which was a major hit on jazz radio in 2005. His previous eight CDs “Hit and Run”,”Detour Ahead”, “Homage”, “Riding the Curve”, “Somewhere in the Night”, “In-A-Chord”, “Jubilation”, and “Walk On” have all recieved critical acclaim and commercial success. Johnston's recordings have throught the years featured an impressive array of sidemen including Grady Tate, Joey De Francesco, Benny Green, Eric Alexander, Idris Muhammad, and the legendary Johnny Griffin among others. These albums feature both original material and compositions drawn from the great American songbook as well as new interpretations of the classic jazz repertoire.
