Comin' Back Around, the talented musician's return to his own Marimelj label and first release since 1998's critically acclaimed Chocolate City Groovin', is a self-produced amalgam of styles and moods. From his smooth cover of Eryka Badu's "On And On," to the hypnotically mid-tempo "Through The Spirit," to the infectiously upbeat "1223 Chillin'," Johnson creates an overall mood that can best be described as seductive. "That's definitely the vibe I was going for," he says. "I wanted to create a mood so romantic that you pop in the CD, hit repeat, grab your significant other and let the music flow with you all night long."
Johnson's unique ability to seamlessly blend varying musical styles should not come as a surprise. It's a philosophy he lives by. A self-taught keyboardist who draws inspiration from Quincy Jones, George Duke, Gerald Albright and other "musical entrepreneurs," Johnson, in 1997, graduated from Georgetown University with a Law Degree and a Masters in Business Administration. "Don't ask me how I did it," he says, laughing at the memory of grueling all-night study sessions. "The will, desire and determination to succeed is a gift from God through my parents."
It's those same attributes that makes Comin' Back Around such a stunning piece of work. With all but one of the songs being self composed - the exception being the aforementioned "On And On" - Johnson has created the perfect conduit between his built-in core audience of smooth jazz aficionados and, as he puts it, "the high end of the 18-24 hip-hop crowd." His ability to touch the two seemingly diverse listeners is rooted in the music being what he likes to call "instrumental R&B. People hear the instrumentation and they're ready to label it contemporary jazz. The two should not be confused," he emphatically explains.
