Adam " A D " Johnson

Born:

Since growing up in the latter part of the Funk era, and through the Hip Hop era, in which it's based on, after listening to " The J.B's ", James Brown's Funk band that help birth Hip Hop Music, and also growing up during the resurgence of Bop Jazz in the 80's, that's almost my take on playing Bop Jazz, almost combining the two genres, ( Bop Jazz swing, with Funk / Hip Hop rhythms ), when possible. I've spent many years mastering my craft in; The Music Conservatory of Westchester, in White Plains, NY, as well as in my internationally well-known drum school at; The Collective School of Music, ( The Drummer's Collective ), in lower Manhattan Interested in continuing to swing and hit the studio with other Neo-Bop Jazz / Neo-Traditionalist aficionados in either a typical acoustic rhythm section; Pianist & Double Bassist, or substituting the Pianist with a Guitarist to make heads bop and feet tap, all over N.Y.C., when gigging or busking. INFLUENCES Philly Joe Jones with Miles' First Great Quintet, Ben Riley with Monk's Quartet, Louis Hayes with the Cannonball Adderley combos

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
