George V. Johnson, Jr.

It was a beautiful day in September
Now I was busy gazing out the window
Then all of the sudden as I looked right to the corner
I could see her walking down the street.
George V. Johnson, Jr., "My Little Suede Shoes"

This up-and-coming singer stakes a solid claim as the musical heir to Eddie Jefferson. Heck, while I was entering the track listing of my latest Jefferson album, I stuck Next in Line! in the CD player, and within a track I was convinced I was listening to Jefferson. That said, Johnson has his own style and his own songs, and I look eagerly forward to hearing more from him.
