Description

Johnny Griffin has become one of the most popular expatriate Americans now resident in Europe, a man who can be guaranteed to bring an extra layer of excitement to any musical gathering and who never seems to be off form. “I came up in clubs in Chicago” he told writer Kitty Grime, “everyone talking, dancing doing what they want to, but they could still enjoy the music”. I’m not for that ssh, quiet, cool. I try to enjoy myself and see that the musicians I’m working with enjoy themselves and take the public on a trip.
