Johnny Blas
Country of Residence:
United States
Hard hitting conguero, saxophonist, composer and bandleader Johnny Blas is a New York native who has performed and recorded in the world of Jazz and Latin music for over 25 years. Johnny’s diverse experience has enabled him to equally display his exceptional talents, energy and profound versatility by always putting on a fierce show with swing, energy and attitude. He has been described as having the chops as a performer and original composer, using his musicality and charisma as a percussionist in getting his congas talking in both flashy solos and more restrained interior lines. His mastery of music allows him the ability to easily adapt and cover a broad spectrum. Influenced by the music of Mongo Santamaria, Ray Barretto, Poncho Sanchez, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker his sound is stylish and funky, an infusion of Latin, Funk and Jazz with Afro-Caribbean groove.

Johnny has five Latin Jazz CD recordings under the famed CuBop label, all of which showcases a majority of his original arrangements and have earned critical praise in the Latin and Jazz music press. His music is currently played in the Top 10 U.S. radio markets and throughout Europe.
