SCOTT ALBERT JOHNSON..Going Somewhere(Monkaroo Music/Hemifran) 2015.
CD
Various genres – USA

“Going Somewhere”, actual album release of Scott Albert Johnson, is a product of his long life and music experience. Through 9 songs, USA artist has offered diverse authors and performing signatures, presented songs also have a different genre’s moods, but one crystal element dominate through complete listening process of material, and this is a fantastic performing harmonica skills of Scott himself.

He has a unique performing style, and in most of the songs, harmonica is a leading instrument. Through interesting  lyrical approach, Mr.Johnson musically combine elements of rock, blues  pop, jazz,  and hidden so call electronic variants as well. Songs are different among them, but one typical atmosphere, as same as fresh own energy, characterize his opus.

I would recommend a Scott’s brilliant version of Peter Gabrial’s track – “I Don’ t Remember”, where Mr. Johnson has showed an original arrangements tricks, as same as refreshing energy, and as a result, we have a new “recovering” tune, and potential concert adut too.
“Going Somewhere”is interesting album, I would add with one important modern look, mentioned fresh energy, and clear attitude. Quite enough…

SCOTT ALBERT JOHNSON..Personal pictureAktualno albumsko ostvarenje Scott Albert Johnsona je proizvod njegovog dugogodišnjeg životnog i muzičkog iskustva. Oko sebe je okupio ekipu istomišljenika, sa kojima je realizovao materijal sa albuma, kojeg karakteriše različita stilska forma, ali same songove spaja rekao bih neponovljiva energija autora, kao i istaknuto njegovo lično sviranje harmonike.
On je usno harmonikaš koji ima izražen sopstveni stil, čak drži i lekcije, a sama harmonika na većini prisutnih songova predstavlja vodeći instrument.
Scott kombinuje elemente rocka, popa, bluesa, jazza, prikrivene elektronike, gde do izražaja dolaze bogati aranžmanski iskoraci, takođe ubedljivo vokaliziranje, ali i da pomenem još jednom – energija , koja ga u dobroj meri izdvaja i na neki način čini posebnim kao izvođača.

Na albumu se nalazi i sjajna verzija Peter Gabrielovog songa – “I Don’t Remeber”, kojem je Scott udahnuo novi život, a njegova verzija je izuzetno pogodna i za koncertno izvođenje.

“Going Somewhere” je vrlo intersantno albumsko izdanje koje ide u korak sa savremenim trenutkom, i koje otkriva gospodina Johnsona kao u dobroj meri originalnog autora.
