Gabriel Johnson Biography
After graduating from the New England Conservatory of Music, jazz trumpeter Gabriel Johnson honed his sound while playing and recording with jazz, R&B, and Classical artists, including Chris Botti, Jill Scott, Diddy, Jackie Evancho, David Foster, Placido Domingo, and B.o.B, to name a few. In 2007, Johnson had a career turning point when filmmaker and jazz enthusiast Clint Eastwood heard his playing and remarked: “You’ve got a great sound. I’m working on this movie [Changeling] and I think you could be right for it.” Johnson’s solo was part of the end title and the score earned a Golden Globes nomination. Eastwood invited Johnson to solo again in his next film, Invictus, a biopic of Nelson Mandela and South Africa’s rugby team.
During this period, Johnson began writing and arranging songs for his debut album, Introducing Gabriel Johnson. Multi-Grammy winning trumpeter and composer Chris Botti, whom Johnson has also performed with, says “he has a beautiful and mature sound and I view him as the new standard for modern young trumpet players.
Album Introducing Gabriel Johnson:
Johnson's debut album released September 2012 is comprised of 10 original compositions and his spin on three covers, including a brooding version of Radiohead’s Codex and a melancholy take on the time-honored classic, Summertime. Throughout the record Johnson’s trumpet soars front-and-center, showcasing his melodic creativity, infectious compositions and beautiful trumpet sound.
