Quiet Callings an Evening of Improvisation and Inspiration Fred Johnson is a world-renowned performer and his opening for both Aretha Franklin and Dr. Deepak Chopra points to his versatility as an artist. An acclaimed jazz musician and singer, Johnson has recorded and toured worldwide with jazz legends Chick Corea, George Benson, David Sanborn, B. B. King, Ramsey Lewis, Patti LaBelle, Herbie Mann, and the great Miles Davis. His presentations on the healing power of music have caught the attention of internationally recognized holistic health practitioners. Mentored by masters of the African oral and percussion legacy, Johnson has been hailed as one of the true guardians of an oral tradition transplanted and nurtured to create a fusion of cultural heritage that is uniquely American and inherently African. Johnson performs with internationally known pianist Daniel Kelly and the contemporary artist Marc Lavasseur who will be participating on stage by placing the melodic sounds on canvas.
