The easygoing charm of Johnny O’Neal’s vocal delivery… can sometimes overshadow the brilliant clarity of his piano playing.”—WBGP.org

Neo-bop pianist/vocalist and Detroit native Johnny O’Neal is an outstanding interpreter of a wide range of styles, evoking the influences of his idols Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum. Fusing ease and sensitivity with a swinging and melodic approach, he has played with jazz giants such as Clark Terry, Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, and Dizzy Gillespie in the ’80s New York scene, and took on the role of his hero Art Tatum in Ray. His latest project In the Moment was released last fall and ranges from blues to straight-ahead, and post-bop to pop.
