Henry Johnson is one of a rare breed of musicians who moves comfortably between the world of classic jazz and the current contemporary jazz scene. The Chicago-born guitarist has worked with the likes of Stanley Turrentine, Jimmy Smith, Ramsey Lewis and currently travels with the quartet that accompanies vocalist Joe Williams. He has recorded three albums for MCA/Impulse and can be heard on his latest record "New Beginnings" for Heads Up Records, where he adds his vocal and composing skills to his formidable guitar playing.
