Lots of folks have heard Ron Johnson’s wonderful jazz numbers on his albums or from the samples on his MySpace page. Some have noted that I refer to him on the Blues Jam home page as “The Amazing Ron Johson”. Others may have become curious after reading Erin’s profile of him a couple of weeks back.
The question: What does it sound like when this guy cranks up the amp and really lets that blue guitar wail?
I’ve got the answer. This is a sample from a recent Monday Night Blues Jam when 8-10 musicians were doing “Black Magic Woman”. Even on little computer speakers it sounds great, but if you’ve got headphones or run it through a good stereo, I bet it’ll give you chills. Here’s Ron’s solo from that song. Enjoy.
