    Howard Johnson RIP

    Acclaimed tubist and multi-instrumentalist Howard Johnson has died at age 79. I first discovered Mr. Johnson while listening to Taj Mahal's album, "The Real Thing." I was finally able to hear him live with his group "Gravity" at the 2014 ITEC conference, in Bloominton, Indiana. He didn't disappoint.

    Thanks for posting this. I have fond memories of Mr. Johnson's tuba from Taj Mahal's "Tom and Sally Drake", from that album.
    My condolences to Mr. Johnson's family and friends.

  3. Hello

    One day, many years ago, I was at Dillons Music in North Jersey and met Howard. He was there to get a tuba repaired and we had a nice conversation. I knew who he was and he was a very nice person. I think that somewhere I have his business card. A great player!
