    NEA Jazz Master Benny Golson 

    On The Artistry of 

    GEORGE V JOHNSON JR

    Knarrative Will Set Us Free

    Walk Spirit Talk Spirit

    In Memory of McCoy Tyner 

    George V. Johnson, Jr’s album entitled, “Your Majesty | Walk Spirit Talk Spirit" is hip and refreshing as it honors the fundamentals of jazz and mindful storytelling.  The 8-song offering includes well-crafted classics featuring original lyrics and arrangements.  Johnson, along with his fellow comrades Elijah Easton (sax), Donvonte McCoy (trumpet), Allyn Johnson (piano), Herman Burney (bass), Steve Arnold (bass), and Dana J. Hawkins (drums) carry the listener through the album’s timely theme of transcendence and renewal of one’s spiritual self. 

    “Walk Spirit Talk Spirit”, the album’s first tune, opens with Allyn Johnson’s majestic playing alongside Dana J. Hawkins’ proficient percussion thus setting the tone for an audio journey.  George V. Johnson’s beautiful, commanding voice sings original lyrics over McCoy Tyner’s Walk Spirit Talk Spirit “Knarrative Will Set Us Free”, Donvonte McCoy and Elijah Easton follow Johnson’s lyrics with a smooth, conversational melody.  Elijah, Donvonte, and Allyn serve up back-to-back, vibrant solos and Herman Burney’s delightful strumming supports the song’s theme.  

    Other tunes featured on the album such as "Fly With The Wind",  "No Room For Squares",  "Gray Train", “Jive Samba” and “Moose the Mooche” are playful and proficient with memorable, sing-along melodies.  “Road Song”, arranged by Donvonte McCoy, one of the album’s gems, is luscious with exceptional storytelling and gentle solos.

    Hello George, I am proud to be a member of the Washington DC Jazz Network (WDJN).

    and to network with other musicians. I get a lot of my news from the emails I receive from WJN.
    I also would like to thank you for supporting the Jazz
    program at Howard University in Washington, DC. Keep up the great work.~~~FRED IRBY
