Another new video from our friend and resident (since 1997) photographer, videographer and film maker Dennis Connors from our performance (Feb 25, 2015) with Howard Johnson. “Nedra” is the title of this composition, composed by Howard for his daughter Nedra. Nedra Johnson is a wonderful performer in her own right: as vocalist, guitarist and yes..tuba player! Nedra often performs with her dad, as vocalist and on tuba and guested on his recording “Gravity! Right Now!”. Her ensemble, “Fat Bottom Girls”, consists of 4 tuba players and a rhythm section in addition to Nedra as leader. Their musical style is blues based, with a repertoire that includes R&B, rock, funk, gospel and jazz.
Enjoy this beautiful composition, Nedra.
