The Story
"Ah Via Musicom" is a celebration by way of the communication of music, as a festival of life. "The communication of music, " states Johnson, "is a heart-bridge gateway to all people: not just the music of instrumentals, but the music everyone can play and hear, the music of humanity, through the instrumentals of love, sharing, giving, friendship and peace." Having heard that, check out the fabulous instrumental, "Cliffs Of Dover". Full of fire, light, and swirling thunder, "Ah Via Musicom" an artistic triumph for Johnson.
