Aaron Johnson is an Improviser and young scholar of  Jazz History and Culture.  A Saxophonist, Clarinetist and Flutist, his music and unrelenting energy have captivated listeners and musicians in a short period of time. A disciple of Charlie Parker and the Bebop era, Johnson is an artist possessing a wild musical imagination, a fearless heart and a probing intellect.

He has lectured, given talks and moderated panels regarding the state of Jazz, it's history, identity, culture and function at notable institutions such as New York University, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The National Jazz Museum of Harlem  and the College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, Virginia).  

Johnson has appeared in concerts and jazz club settings as a sideman to notable Jazz artists and rising stars such as Jonathan Batiste, Connie Crothers, Bruce Harris, Michael Mwenso, James Langton's NY All Star Big Band and The Jimmy Halperin Quartet as well as leading his Quintet with Trumpeter  Benny Benack III at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, Jazz at Lincoln Center. In 2009 and 2014, Aaron produced historically accurate recreations of Benny Goodman's Orchestra (2009, Oregon) and Charlie Parker with Strings (2014, NYC). 

Aaron resides in New York City, where he leads multiple projects (from Trio with Abbey Lincoln's drummer (Mark Johnson), to Quartet, Quintet, the Webb City Nonet and Big Band), Lectures and Teaches Jazz privately.
