Album Notes
Hank Johnson was born on July 14, 1949 in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York. Hank began piano study early in life at age three. Mrs. Henryetta Klein was Hank's first piano teacher. Thereafter, he continued his private piano instruction with classical pianist Ms Malady, who taught piano at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. Other instructors have included Morty Reed (M. Feldman) who worked as a showband pianist in Las Vegas. Hank also learned to write music, and developed the friendship and guidance of Maurice R. Cox (Ray Cox), who worked for Machito (Latin American Band), as a copyist and arranger. Hank Johnson graduated George W. Wingate High School in June, 1967. Hank continued his education and, in June 1970, was awarded an AAS Degree in Graphic Arts and Advertising Technology, from what was then called New York City Community College In December 1973 a BFA degree was awarded from New York Institute of Technology, with a major in Communication Arts.

In 1977 Hank had replaced Jimmy Nottingham's trio at the Village Door Restaurant and Supper Club in Jamaica, Queens, NY. It was there at the Village Door that Hank got the hands on experience that would spark and ignite his goal to be not just a piano player, but to be the best piano player.

A truly remarkable trio making great music!
The Hank Johnson Trio is to jazz what Einstein is to physics, great! "Cool Mike" Fitzbenjamin is truly one of the world's premier bassists who deserves to be heard, and should be known as the basists basist. Hank Johnson is a very original self educated jazz pianist who was influenced by such giant piano moguls as Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum. Gary Smith, provides flawless timing as only a top studio drummer can with great accuracy and percision. These 3 dudes make for some great music that not only is great to listen to, but also healing qualities after a hard day a work. The trio makes for some great listening and enjoyment spanning the jazz timeline, funk, calypso, blues, gospel. Check it out!
