Vail Johnson and Friends: presented by Sidetrack Sessions

  • Kimbros 214 South Margin Street Franklin, TN, 37064 United States (map)

From Vail Johnson (bassist to the stars; Herbie Hancock to Kenny G; Stevie Nicks to Whitney Houston) comes the new style of JazzAmericana, fusing Americana, Blues, Soul and Country with Jazz.

"VAIL IS ONE OF THE RARE BREED WHO EXCEL IN BOTH THE STUDIO AND ON STAGE" - KENNY G

Vail Johnson has been playing bass for notable artists since the mid-’80s. His credits include Kenny G, Herbie Hancock, Michael Bolton, James Ingram, Stevie Nicks, MC Hammer, Warren Hill, Patti Austin, Frank Gambale, Eric Marienthal, Peabo Bryson, Edgar Winter, Keb' Mo' and Gil Scott Heron, to name a handful.

But when he's not on stage with Kenny or one of the other stellar artists, he's occupied in his studio, Viking Recorders, where he tracks and mixes contemporary jazz and world beats, with a more country/rock focus starting to creep in after a recent move to Nashville.
