ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I'm Just Sayin'" is my second release as a leader for the Victory Records label. It contains 12 selections that cover jazz standards, jazz arranged rock tunes, and two originals. The release creates a variety of musical textures and is "accessible jazz"for the casual listener. I hope you will enjoy this release.

Best one yet!
OK, first let me say that the concert introducing Larry Johnson's new CD was absolutely awesome! We really enjoyed watching this collection of incredible musicians ply their craft - one of the best live shows we have seen in a long while.
It was so very good that we were compelled to purchase a copy of this CD at the concert and the next day, I played it to see if musicianship and entertainment was of the same caliber as we experienced at the live show. I am happy to report that the recording does not disappoint. Not only are the performances top notch, so is the engineering quality of the CD - it was skillfully mixed and exhibited a very high production quality. It sounded great on our system at home!

All I can say is BUY IT - you won't regret it!

"Speakin' and Swingin' From A "Boss" Tenor!!
One of the weakest clichés emanating from social media and the digital populus is the road weary “just sayin’.” The phrase disturbs because it usually delivers a comment that presents, invites response and disenfranchises itself all at once. Well, unlike that trite phrase album title notwithstanding, there’s much to elaborate and enjoy about this superlative effort from St. Louis tenor artist, Larry Johnson. And, that’s saying so without reservation or regret, Miss Otis.

Marvelously produced and performed, the twelve selections Johnson and Team send up range from jazz standards (“Cherokee,” “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes” and “All Blues”) to more current rock/pop fare. All place Johnson and his crew in a place where all can – and do - shine.

Johnson, a mainstay on the St. Louis music scene, plays a terrific tenor that’s more inviting in tone – robust, but, not harsh. His takes on Sting’s “Roxanne” and “I Want to Talk About You” are perfect examples of Johnson’s elegant restraint – the emotional points get across with class and finesse. As a jazz soloist stretching, Johnson lays out long, smooth melodically-driven lines, all intelligent and definitely “speaking.” He also shows he has quite the deft pen with the street-beating title track and his Top-Cat strutter, “Blues for CJ.”

Joining Johnson on this session are some of St. Louis’s finest and Victoria’s regulars – trumpeter Jim Manley and trombonist/keyboardist Mark Owens, both of whom score big. Pianist Carolbeth True “kills” with her tasty intro to “Night.” The rhythm section covers the diverse material exceptionally well and the savvy inclusion of strings is a tasteful, elegant addition to an elegant session.

Following up on his well-received recording, “Cycles,” with “I’m just Sayin’” Larry Johnson continues to deliver superb playing and most enjoyable, versatile listening.
And, I’m sayin’ and writin’ on the record.
