Johnnie B Bad

news & reviews

  • about this album

    Perhaps best known as the pianist for Chuck Berry, Johnnie Johnson is equally a leader in his own right, as heard here. He is joined by various bands that include Keith Richards and Eric Clapton for a rollicking set of country and jazz tinged-blues. The New York Times called it “a long-overdue tribute to one of rock-and-roll's most talented unsung heroes.”
