The late jazz legend
James P. Johnson became famous for tunes such as
"The Charleston" and "Carolina Shout". His piano virtuosity and compositional talent profoundly influenced the other piano legends such as Jazz greats Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, and many others.

"Father of Stride Piano"

Many of his original pieces are back in circulation.

"De Organizer" and "Yamekraw: A Negro Rhapsody" performed for the first time in decades. And several other pieces are being prepared for live re-debuts!

'De Organizer' - For more information, sound clips, and articles about the restoration and performance,
