I have just started backing Jimmy Henley as a Bass player on a couple of his projects. I have played for years but have not always been given the opportunity because I am much more associated with guitar. My guitar influences are quite obvious (even to me!): Phil Keaggy, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, George Harrison, Carlos Santana... Now that I am working on this project with Jimmy I am seeing that the people I thought were my influences on Bass are not as diverse as I thought. I always imagined because I played in Funk and Jazz groups my influences would be Ron Carter, Stanley Carter, Louis Johnson, Bootsy Collins...just because I played a lot of their riffs. What I discovered when I had to write my own riffs is that I play more melodic than funky...more Paul McCartney than Parliament. No matter what I do I cannot seem to escape the Beatles lol!

Kaul enjoyed good rapport with the high and mighty in the US. In 1948, Nehru, before his 1949 US visit, asked Kaul to approach the US authorities for an exclusive Indo-US military relationship. Nehru bypassed ambassador, Asif Ali, because Kaul was considered to be close to Louis Johnson, then US Defence Secretary.

[Topeka Capital-Journal] - K-State has St. Louis connections in Williams, Johnson..
NC State is up like 35% of St. Louis' total points with 12 minutes left. I should feel better about this lead than I do.
This is definitely St. Louis' kind of game. Ugly, physical.
So St. Louis is 5-7 from 3-point range and has done just about nothing else right. But that shot keeps you in a lot of games.
St. Louis goes three-up, three-down. Hunter Johnson leads off for Ouachita in the bottom of the 1st.
In other news they are letting St. Louis grab and handcheck constantly. So that's fun.
I know but St. Louis is so blatant.
State has scored on as many possessions as St. Louis but trails by 3 because Rob Loe left P&R to play college ball.
Yes, as so eloquently put it - St. Louis loves to force teams to take those long 2-pointers.

Born in Beaumont, Texas, Graham played bass in the highly successful and influential funk band Sly and the Family Stone from 1966 to 1972. It is said that he pioneered the art of slap-pop playing on the electric bass, in part to provide percussive and rhythmic elements in addition to the notes of the bass line when his mother's band lacked a drummer; the slap of the thumb being used to emulate a bass drum and the pop of the index or middle finger as a snare drum.[1] This style has become archetypal of modern funk. Slap-pop playing couples a percussive thumb-slapping technique of the lower strings with an aggressive finger-snap of the higher strings, often in rhythmic alternation. The slap and pop technique incorporates a large ratio of muted or "dead" notes to normal notes, which adds to the rhythmic effect. This "slap" bass style was later used by such artists as Les Claypool (of Primus), Bootsy Collins, Louis Johnson, Mark King, Flea, Tim Commerford, Peter Hook, Mike Mills, Victor Wooten, Jonas Hellborg ...

I use to think today would be my day too, thinking I'd be a combat cameraman, but asthma disqualified me instantly. Maybe it's a good thing, since I wasn't going to join out of patriotism. However I'm grateful for my past relatives who served in the American Revolution, possibly the War of 1812, four served against the Confederates in the Civil War, in which one was killed at Bull Run and another was a Union Scout known today as "Wild Bill Hickok". My great, great grandpa, Milliard Filmore Johnson Sr. served against the Spanish in Cuba during the Spanish American War (he was a real sob though). World War I saw an officer in the family serving in France. My great, great uncles Louis Johnson and John Jackson served in WWII. John survived the wreck of the famous USAT Dorchester which was sunk by a Nazi U-boat off the coast of Greenland, and Louis fought with the 105th Engineer Battalion from Normandy, to the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium, into Germany, and eventually Czechoslovakia. He was also present duri ...
I DOCENTI TRACY INMAN (CO-DIRECTOR, THE AILEY SCHOOL) HORTON HORTON PEDAGOGY Tracy Inman is a native of Washington, D.C. and a graduate of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts where he majored in music. In 1981, he changed his artistic course from music to dance and moved to New York City where he was awarded a scholarship to study at The Ailey School. After completing two years of study, Mr. Inman joined Ailey II and, in 1990, he became a member of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater -- touring nationally and internationally with the Company for five years and working with choreographers such as Ulysses Dove, Jerome Robbins, Donald Byrd, and Louis Johnson. Mr. Inman danced in the Vienna, Austria and Antwerp, Belgium productions of the musical Cats and, in 1989, he was invited by Judith Jamison to be a part of The Jamison Project, prior to joining Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater the next year.

Funkyman's 365 Days of Funk - Day Johnson - "Strawberry Letter 23" Want to hear the best funk bass playing? Louis Johnson. He and his brother were amazing guitarists, and I can only imagine what growing up playing together must have been like. They put a band together, wrote some great songs, and hit gold with this song and a couple of others like "I'll Be Good to You." The opening bars of this song have been sampled frequently in hip-hop as well (DJ Quik comes to mind). Unlike some people, when I hear a great hip-hop song with a sample, I'm inpsired to know where it came from. Education is key, people! Don't look at hip-hop as stealing. Look at it as an opportunity to learn about music you didn't even know existed. Believe me, producers and DJ's take the time to know good music. Thank you Brothers Johnson, AND thank you hip-hop from - Funkyman

Hi Good weather today. My flyer buddy and college friend, Bishop Byers, is here with me at Woodlawn public library. I ran into an ole shelter buddy, Louis Johnson, yesterday at 7-11 van pick-up spot. He just happened to be in the area. I had a tussle yesterday, nothing serious, with a guy at shelter. The guy, Kevin Griffin, an ex golf pro he says, elbows and pushes his way to the front of the medication line. I was able to get him out from in front of me. This wasn't liked. I guess I should let him jump in front, cuz everybody was upset with me. The staff guy, Aurthor, who was passing out the medication didn't like it. There are some people who you are supposed to let them do what they want to, no matter how childish, in a shelter.. Plus, this guy Kevin, likes to call me Big Bird and Ragity Andy all the time. When I started using his first name in conversation, he seemed to ease up a bit. people in a shelter don't want alot of others to know there names. HA HA Anyway, I had breakfast with Dan, Deyon, Mike ...

Born in Los Angeles, Albright grew up in its South Central neighborhood. He began piano lessons at an early age, even though he professed no great interest in the instrument. His love of music picked up considerably when he was given a saxophone that belonged to his piano teacher. It was further reinforced when he attended Locke High School, a breeding ground for many young West Coast musicians.[citation needed] After high school, he attended the University of Redlands where he received a B.S. degree in business management, minoring in music. Already a polished saxophonist by the time he enrolled in college, Albright suddenly switched to bass guitar after he saw Louis Johnson in concert. Immediately after college, Albright began to master his talent by working extensively in the studio with such artists as Anita Baker, Ray Parker, Jr., The Temptations and Olivia Newton-John. A few months after graduating from college, Gerald joined Patrice Rushen, who was in the process of forming her own band, in which h ...

When it comes to slapping, greasy funk bass, this is the cat that influenced me the most of all Louis Johnson. I had his "Star Licks" VHS tape, got it in 1985 for my birthday, wore that sucker out, then came along Stanley Clarke, Larry Graham, Rodney *** Curtis, Bootsy, and others into my view. I was also heavily into rock cats like John Paul Jones, Jack Bruce, John Entwistle, Geezer Butler, and Steve Harris. Eventually I began to dig the fusion records with Percy Jones and Jaco a bit as well. Throughout my early journey the Detroit soul scene with James J. as well as the many Stax recordings with Duck turned me on big time. That's where my own style and love of soulful groovin bass began to develop in the early years, and still to this day is rooted in these elements and influence.
Wow, I love this, it kind of reminds me of some earlier Michael stuff with the Louis Johnson (
A reminder to many who wanted to know. I will be preaching in a one day Revival at Williams Chapel in Vossburg, MS located on Hwy 503 just south of Paulding, MS this coming Sunday afternoon at 2 PM.

It was and is an honor to be asked to be a part of the Revival in a sister church pastored by a great friend and brother in Christ, Louis Johnson, Jr. Everyone is invited to join us as we hear about what the Lord says to Ezekiel in 37:1-14.
