On March 18th, 2005, with his latest CD approaching the pinnacle of the jazz chart, Randy Johnston captured the energy of the moment in front of a packed house at the Smithsonian Jazz Cafe.

Bassist Tom Pietrycha and drummer Tony Leone joined Randy on this exhilarating blend of originals and covers, including John Coltrane's Impressions and Don Militello's Seems Like Times Are Changin.

A seasoned professional with several world tours under his belt, Randy has performed and recorded with Lou Donaldson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Houston Person, Etta Jones, Lionel Hampton, Brother Jack McDuff, Warne Marsh, Lee Konitz, Joey DeFrancesco, Tom Harrell, Irene Reid, Rashid Ali, and other jazz notables.
