The Pittsburgh JAZZ All-Stars!
Eric Johnson Kenny Blake Roger Humphries
Over a 40 year career, Eric has traveled the world and performed with some of the Jazz world's great artists - from Leon Spencer Jr. and Stanley Turrentine to Hank Crawford and Ramsey Lewis - just to name a few. His career began in Pittsburgh, in the late 60's Rhythm and Blues/Jazz Funk circuit and Johnson has been recording, touring and performing - locally and across the world - ever since.
Another native Pittsburgher - Kenny Blake started playing the clarinet at age 10 and the saxophone at age 12. Yet, when he entered Columbia University - his first inclination was to be a pre-med student. Fortunately for us, Kenny found his niche in music. Blake's unique contemporary jazz style - combining traditional jazz leanings with modern rhythm and blues, elevated him both commercially and artistically in the 90's. Kenny creates some of the most distinctive sounds in the genre and brings over 20 years as a local jazz favorite to his recordings and appearances.
In August of 1962 began Roger's first major road job. He joined Stanley Turrentine (also from Pittsburgh) and Shirley Scott at the Hurricane in the Hill District of Pittsburgh.
In 1964 Roger went to New York to join the Horace Silver Quintet. While with Silver, he toured Europe twice and appeared at the Monterey Jazz Festival, There, he was interviewed by renowned jazz writer, Leonard Feather. A summary of that interview is included in the Encyclopedia of Jazz in the Sixties.
