Jazz and bluesy standards with a touch of Bossa Novas

An evening of jazz and jazzy standards delivered by the jazz, soul and blues singer Bruce Lester Johnson. London-based African American jazz, soul and blues singer Bruce Lester Johnson was born in Starkville, Mississippi and grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. Heavily influenced by his father's love of classic Soul and R&B, music and singing were always a part of Bruce's life. Bruce Lester Johnson - Vocals Leo Richardson - Sax Mike Gorman - Piano Neville Malcolm - Bass Chris Draper - Drums Bruce began to showcase his talent in various venues around Paris and it wasn't long before this charismatic, six foot four inch, singer with the effortlessly soulful bass baritone voice was being noticed for his unique sound and style, and his popularity soon began to grow. With his reputation on the rise he branched out and formed his own funk band that was to go on and win the Jack Daniel’s music competition in Bordeaux, judged by the late, great Nina Simone.
