Only the finest musicians have the ability to capture the nuances of life in sound, which puts Johnny in a very exclusive group of six-stringers that includes Les Paul, Wes Montgomery, Jeff Beck, Chet Atkins, and Jimi Hendrix. The secret is his blend of melody, sonic definition, technique and that indefinable-yet-tangible quality called ‘soul.’ And he’s eloquently shared that secret on the CDs Sometime Tuesday Morning (2001), Get Inside (2004) and the instructional DVD Taste, Tone, Space (2006). All the virtues of Johnny A’s playing are in abundant display on One November Night. Johnny has shared the stage with B.B. King, Les Paul, Jeff Beck, JJ Cale, Etta James, Dr. John, Joe Satriani, Peter Frampton, Steve Vai, George Thorogood, Eric Johnson, Joe Bonamassa, Huey Lewis and the News, Sonny Landreth, Robben Ford, Monte Montgomery, Duke Robillard and Coco Montoya, among others. Performances at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival and many more.
