Biography

Renowned jazz keyboardist, composer and producer Marcus Johnson continues to stand strong with his latest CD titled Poetically Justified, released June 2, 2009 with a debut at #10 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts.


Poetically Justified marks Johnson’s eleventh solo jazz record and is Johnson’s most unique and multifaceted album to date. His experience and passion provide the perfect platform for this newest musical masterpiece, best described as a combination of smooth urban jazz with a slice of funk.

Poetically Justified is introduced with musical force in the funky opener “Chillaxin” which emphatically sets the tone for this CD and follows with two in-the- pocket jamming upbeat tracks — “Capice” lead by the signature voice of hit R&B vocalist Miles Jaye, and “I See You” featuring Grammy winner jazz saxophonist Najee. “Master of My Heart” is lead by the sultry vocal stylings of Incognito’s Maysa, and is a beautiful romantic ballad produced by Johnson and Raheem Davaughn producer, Robbie McDonald. This song is currently in heavy rotation on adult contemporary radio WHUR in Washington, DC. These four songs set us up for an explosive journey that continues with some great original tracks – Danni’s Song; the bouncy staccato horn driven Ellicott City; the beautifully produced and performed “Cherish the Journey” and Maysa’s upeat performance on “Hold On”.
