Album Notes
Vail Johnson Releases New
Album FLOW
Nashville, TN January 15, 2014- Long awaited follow- up to the iconic, bass
heavy CD 'Terminator', Vail returns to the smooth, sophisticated funky R&B
instrumentals that put him on the map around the globe from World Tours with
Kenny G, Keb Mo and Herbie Hancock to showing off on 'The Arsenio Hall Show',
to name a few.
This album of original works features Vail's bass playing in many
roles; always on the melody and traditional bass lines, Vail adds harmonic chordal
parts supporting the pianos and guitars. This coupled with an keen ear toward
simplicity results in a unique and engaging sound unlike what you might expect
from a 'bass players' CD. Fans of Kenny G, funky instrumentals or smooth jazz
will love this music. 'FLOW' will be supported by the Kenny G World Tour,
continuing in 2014.
'FLOW' was recorded and mixed in Franklin, Tennessee with great care using real,
'live' musicians and lots of classic analogue gear (like a Neve 8078), this CD aims
to recreate the warm, open sounds of the 70's and 80's with the clarity and
convenience of the digital realm.
Vail has played bass for a long list of world- renowned artists over a 3 decade
career and shows no signs of slowing down in 2014. Recording sessions and
songwriting in Nashville take up the time between tours.
