O’s Notes: Richard leads a very lively set with his guitar. Sparks fly on the opener, “Hip Hop Zep”, before relaxing with predominantly bluesy, new age songs. They regain the pace mid-way through the set to keep the feeling varied. Johnson’s style is unique, a welcome variation form the standard contemporary jazz guitar.
