Description Winard Harper, Jersey City resident, band leader and one of the famous Jazz drummers of our time, brings world class Jazz artists to Jersey City - every Sunday evening and early enough so that you can bring the kids! Moore's Lounge has been an institution within the Jersey City community for over 40 years. No need to travel to NYC if Jazz is what you need most and no need to spend a fortune. Come to Moore's Lounge on Sunday, enjoy superb Jazz music and find out more about the featured Artist's fascinating life and career - on January 14th Winard Harper presents saxophonist Leo Johnson - a mainstay on the local jazz scene ever since the 1950's. Over the years, Johnson has also served as a mentor to any number of young musicians who either lived locally or came to the New York metropolitan area seeking a career in jazz, artists that include Cassandra Wilson, Winard and Phillip Harper, Terence Blanchard, Victor Jones, Andy McCloud, Dave Eubanks, Alan Watson and Regina Belle. Johnson has released two CDs in recent years: "It's About Time" and "Message to Mankind." He is the musical director of the Newark Jazz Elders.
