Jeff Johnston

Active on the Canadian music scene for over fifteen years and considered one of this country’s finest musicians, Johnston has performed and recorded with many of the world’s best, including John Abercrombie, Don Alias, Shirley Eikhard, Kenny Wheeler, Dave Liebman, Ron Hynes, Archie Shepp, Sonny Greenwich and Slide Hampton. His music has been described by critics as “outstanding in every way”, “Canadian jazz at it's best”, “unparalleled for risk or drama”, and in 1998 Jazz Times Magazine proclaimed “this is music that while at the contemporary cutting edge is also immensely and immediately satisfying”. He has performed extensively throughout North America and Europe including the Antibes Jazz Festival in France, the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy and as a regular at the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

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!
