About the Event

Jazz for the Soul is so pleased to present music pioneer, bassist, performer, educator, Todd Johnson along with Nicole Pesce (piano), Andy Gross (sax), and Dom Moio (drums) for a night of groove and rhythm you won't want to miss.  Join us for a night of "greasy, soulful standards", including some of your favorite songs and a salute to bass legend, Ray Brown.

Todd Johnson is recognized as a pioneer of the six-string electric bass. With his Zon signature model six-string bass, Todd has developed an innovative technique where he plays chord changes and bass lines. Though Johnson dedicates himself largely to performing and recording, he also teaches courses and workshops in a variety of settings. As a seasoned performing artist, Todd Johnson has developed a rich philosophy encompassing his spiritual, educational and achievement-oriented sides. Johnson sees his talent as a "gift from God" to continually enhance and develop. A unique musician with a unique instrument, Johnson strives to stretch the limits, creating new sounds and directions in which the electric bass can go.   "Todd Johnson has found the freedom of extra strings, and as such has developed a distinctive solo voice on his instrument..." writes Jim Fisch. Time and again, Johnson is acknowledged as unique, creative and innovative in his musical talents. He brings more than mastery to the electric bass; Todd Johnson brings a new vision of the instrument that greatly expands its musical horizon.
