Jared Johnson, an Active Drummer on the Tulsa Scene, Offers "The Grapes of Wrath Project"

Jared-Johnson-CD.jpg
Aired on Thursday, January 11th.

On this edition of ST, we listen back to our conversation from September with Jared Johnson, who's a fine drummer on the Tulsa-area music circuit as well as a drumset instructor at Northeastern State University. Jared gigs widely on the local scene, playing in all sorts of bands and musical settings, and mainly works as a jazz drummer. When we spoke with him last year, he told us about his then-new modern jazz album, a self-produced collection of original compositions entitled "The Grapes of Wrath Project." With tracks called (to name but a few) "Ma" and "Rose of Sharon" and "All Men Got One Big Soul," this album features music directly and knowingly inspired by John Steinbeck's masterpiece.
