Maurice Johnson | Tonight – [Jazz Drop, 2010]
In the time it takes to listen to this body of work, you will have witnessed a mere glimpse into the mind and spirit of an artist whose time has come in the midst of a troubled economy and the political storm inherited by America’s first African American President.
There have been plenty of talented musical artists, but for veteran guitarist, Maurice Johnson, talented would be an understatement for this self-confessed overachiever. The Maurice Johnson / Mister Johnson experience may be new for many listeners, but one quickly realizes the sound is uniquely his own.
It’s fresh and exciting; smooth, hip, romantic, moving and raw guitar.
Tonight captures the unique and suggestive feeling conveyed in the majority of each title with a picturesque tale entwined in mystique, melody and rhythm.
