It's been a while since I've attended a live concert, but hearing Mr. Johnson play in Oklahoma City was well worth the wait. My father, who plays guitars himself, was also in attendance and we were all impressed. Very smooth jazz. If you haven't heard him, you're missing out!

Maurice's Music Transports You!

As Maurice begins to play you will find yourself in another world. His music transports you to your inward self where peace and love abide and the distractions of the world are silent. And when the music stops you will carry the effects of it for a long time. Take a journey with him as he shares his gift.

Local Music Fan
John Clymer

Maurice Johnson is one the finest jazz and pop guitarists in the world (IMHO). I first heard Maurice play at an Opening Night celebration, in the basement of the Cravens Building (Renaissance Tower). That was probably in 1989. The band was "After Five", and my ears immediately picked up on the great guitar playing. It was several years before I actually found out who that guitarist was. One night, my wife and I were having dinner, and Maurice Johnson was performing solo. During a break, Maurice went from table to table to visit with the customers and see if they had any requests. He still does this today. I have seen Maurice many times since, and I am always amazed and pleased at his playing. Whether he is covering one of the classics or playing his own compositions, he is highly recommended, as are both his "Tonight" and "Peace, Love & Jazz" CDs.

Smooth Jazz at its finest
Connie Rose

Maurice hits all the notes and finds a way into your soul. His music is relaxing, inspiring and fun! You're just not gonna find that everywhere! I am a BIG fan!


I became acquainted with Maurice Johnson's exquisite jazz guitar playing at numerous venues around Oklahoma City. His expertise is immediately recognizable and he manages to draw your complete attention to the music as it weaves a sultry or a soothing web on a cellular level. I have rarely found an artist who kept me spellbound for hours. Mr.Johnson has managed to make me a diehard jazz fan and his CDs are must haves for any true jazz aficionados' collection.

Maurice is very professional, laid back and entertaining. You can tell he loves his music and engages you from the moment he starts to play. I loved his rendition of George Benson's This Masquerade. I could listen to him for hours...

I could listen to Maurice's playing all day. His sound and playing pulls you in to a great listening experience. An excellent example of what Oklahoma offers in great music.

We all know that air travel can be stressful , but Maurice's smooth jazz will definitely calm. Maurice has played numerous times on the Jet Sets stage at Will Rogers World Airport. Our travelers and employees thoroughly enjoy his musical talent! And as manager of the program, I truly appreciate his professionalism and dependability.

Beam Entertainment
Wayman McAllister

Maurice is exactly the type of artist we like to promote - he has his own loyal following, he and his players are all experienced pros, and he embodies a unique sound that broadens OKC's musical landscape (and also fits cozily into just about any setting). The astounding sounds he gets from his guitar are an added bonus. A true original!

I call him the master of Smoothness. So far I know I have all his cd's. Maurice has his own special sound and that's what I like about an artist. He distinguishes himself from other artists and goes for quality. Please go on this way Maurice.
