The monthly Sunday Jazz series at Malika's continues on Sunday, March 14 from 5-8:30pm with Eric Johnson.
He will be joined by the Fablous A-Team, his long time working band. Eric's Pittsburgh based combo has been together for 20 years! The Fabalous A-Team played "Smooth Jazz" before it was called: Smooth Jazz.
Eric Johnson is a soul survivor. Eric’s 40 year career has afforded him the opportunity to travel the world performing with some of the world's greatest jazz artists. Eric Johnson's career began in Pittsburgh, in the late 60's Rhythm and Blues/Jazz Funk circuit. After graduating high school, a bold, eager Eric Johnson took his guitar and went on the road with legendary organist Brother Jack McDuff. Johnson soon became a popular sideman working with Leon Spencer Jr., Lou Donaldson, Jimmy McGriff, Stanley Turrentine, Hank Crawford, Ramsey Lewis and many others.
Eric’s new CD "Supahighway" is a labor of love, a beautiful work of art by a group of long time friends.
The cover for this event is $6. It is a BYOB affair and East Coast Crab has food specials available for $5.
