Sounds Of Love Concert w/Ellen Johnson & Jason Martineau

Sounds of Love Concert Featuring Vocalist Ellen Johnson and Pianist Jason Martineau at Maybeck Studio for the Performing Arts 

The Maybeck Studio for the Performing Arts welcomes vocalist Ellen Johnson and pianist Jason Martineau on June 25 at 3:00 pm as they share a musical dance through song, poetry and free improvisation.  From a variety of musical genres this concert is an experience of creative nuance and connection using songs that speak of the many shades of love.  According to Christopher Louden writing in JazzTimes, “When it comes to shaping wordless gems, Johnson packs as imaginative a wallop as the mighty (Bobby) McFerrin.” Martineau has been active in the San Francisco Bay area as an award winning composer, pianist, arranger and instructor. Johnson and Martineau share a love for improvised music and have performed together on numerous occasions most recently doing the music of Charles Mingus.  The concert is $20 general admission with limited seating available at:

"When it comes to shaping wordless gems, Johnson packs as imaginative a wallop as the mighty McFerrin." - Christopher Louden, JazzTimes

“Many musicians touch the heart or the mind or the soul, some reach out to more than one of these, only a few appeal to all. With her new album, Ellen Johnson is clearly one of these select few.” - Bruce Crowther, Jazz Journal International
