Silver Spring Jazz Star Dominates Billboard with Three Albums

Renowned Jazz Musician Marcus Johnson Dominates Billboard with Three Albums Topping the Contemporary Jazz Charts, Including the #2 Spot in the Country

(March 12, 2009-Washington, DC)— On the eve of his new album release, “Poetically Justified” (in stores May 19th), award winning Jazz pianist Marcus Johnson is riding high with the #2, #7 and #13 contemporary jazz albums in the country. First released in September 2008, the For the Love Of series includes three distinct compilations: FLO: Romance, FLO: Standards, and FLO: Chill all of which have been consistently featured on Billboard’s Top 25 Jazz contemporary charts. All three CDs deliver a smooth and jazzy feeling that makes for a relaxed yet passionate listening experience that keeps you coming back for more of the sultry FLO series.

Marcus Johnson is a force to be reckoned with in the music world, having his previous ten CDs all peak in the Top 25. Not to mention his exhilarating live performances which encompass a unique blend of musical dexterity and magnetic charm that has captured audiences the world over. The success of the FLO series is a testament to Johnson’s inspiration for the eagerly anticipated release of his 11th solo album, that “through the rough times, those who have faith and work hard are Poetically Justified by their success.”

The FLO series was released under the Three Keys Music label, which was co-founded by Marcus Johnson along with Bob Johnson, the founder of BET and owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats. The record label as well as the recording studio, Studio 8121, produces, distributes and promotes adult, urban, contemporary and jazz music. For more information please visit
