Native Washingtonian, Allyn Johnson, is a multi-talented musician, composer, arranger and producer whose trademark sound gives brilliance and fortitude to the art of jazz improvisation. Allyn is one of the nation’s most sought after musicians in the jazz community, often revered by musical giants as well as the “young lions” of his generation. While a student at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), where he earned a B.M. in Jazz Studies, he was mentored by the late jazz legend Calvin Jones and was the first recipient of the Felix E. Grant Scholarship.
