Calvin Johnson -][- JEWEL’S LULLBY –Mp3– [Alma Records, 2012]
Music has flowed mellifluously through Calvin Johnson’s veins as far back as he can remember. He was born into a rich musical heritage where Jazz, Classical and Funk/Soul artists on both sides of his family have paved the way. While Calvin is a multi instrumentalist, he primarily plays the tenor saxophone. His adopted philosophy of perseverance and a respect for the creative force of music allows him to expand on his natural talent instead of taking it for granted. Musical expression, to Calvin, is a constantly evolving process that’s strengthened through hard work and an undying reverence for every note played.
Calvin has performed, recorded, and toured all over the world with acclaimed musicians, Harry Connick Jr., Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Aaron Neville, Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Big Sams Funky Nation, Rebirth Brass Band, and has proven his artistic versatility by performing with hip hop icons such as Mannie Fresh. He has played such esteemed venues as Jazz at Lincoln Center, Kodak Theatre, the Kennedy Center, the White House, and of course all over his home city of New Orleans. He has been a frequent performer at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the French Quarter Festival, and the Voodoo Music Festival, to name a few. -[Expert | Biography]-
