    Numero Uno

    Doug Johns has been playing bass for more than twenty five years. He has worked with Roy Vogt, Victor Wooten, Buddy Miles, Chuck Rainey, Dana Rasch, The LA Mass Choir, Grammy winning producer Aaron Lindsey, Steve Smith, and many others. The Cream of the Crop, to be sure.

    All those years of honing his craft on stage and in the studio must have been building like a volcano in this skilled bassman, because his self-titled first disc erupted in 2006 with a rafter-shaking explosion of monster tunes.

    We've reviewed two of bassist Vail Johnson's albums now: COME TOGETHER. and FLOW, so I thought it was about time that we actually learned a little about the man behind these wonderful works! Vail has graciously agreed to answer some of our questions.

    Album Review
    Steve Swallow With Robert Creeley - So There
    Genre - Jazz/Spoken Word

    Jazz and poetry just seem to go together. You get a trio - say, bass, piano, and drums - on stage to lay down tunes, and there’s always somebody in the crowd who’s imagining what words would go well with the music. I’m not thinking lyrics, but simply verse you might want to read to the backdrop of sound. And if that person was to get on stage with the band and start reading those words, the entire show would take on a whole new vibe. The audience would be treated to a third creation, improvisational and new.

    Vail Johnson - The Seventh Son
    Genre - Vail Johnson

    First off, here’s the description of the album as described on Vail Johnson’s website, as well as CD Baby, and wherever else the album is available:

    “New from Vail Johnson (bassist to the stars; Herbie Hancock to Kenny G to Keb' Mo'; Stevie Nicks to Whitney Houston) comes a new style, fusing Americana, Blues, Soul and Country with Jazz; he calls it 'JazzAmericana'.
