Dan Johnson Trio

Dan Johnson (guitarist) tells us in his biography, that he was initially intrigued by the sounds of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Smiths and Stray Cats and that he “started to play along by ear on a cheap Argos classical – after a lot of perseverance and hacking away, eventually I was ready for my first electric guitar”.

As a teenager he started to delve into jazz, funk, soul, ambient, indie and classic pop; but from his 20’s Dan’s main focus was jazz.

“During this time I was lucky to meet a local sax player and all round amazing guy Eddie Kettlewell who turned me on to lots of great jazz and was very encouraging in what I was doing”.

This led to many years of playing with local and not so local jazz musicians, including gigs with Dave O’Higgins, Joe Giglio and Sheryl Bailey amongst others.

Dan also plays on studio sessions, recording with Gary Reader, Neil Hunter, Tony Kofi and more.

This date sees Dan picking his favourite tunes to play with his compatriots Neil Adam Richards (drums) and Mat Short (bass) and promises to be a very nice gig indeed…
