9th & Russell RELEASED IN 2010 After 10 years in Houston TX, 9th & Russell was the first release by Jeremiah Johnson upon his return to St Louis. 9th & Russell established Johnson as one of the top up and coming musicians in the St Louis area and launched the next 9 years into motion. 9th and Russell didn't receive much radio play beyond the St Louis area, but quickly became a local hit and the band began to sell out all the local venues. It featured Brad Martin (drums) and Jeff Girardier (bass & backing vocals) and the Sliders (horn section comprised of Jim Rosse (trumpet) and Stuart Williams (saxophone). The Sliders are long-time players on the St. Louis blues/R&B scene – working together for over 25 years) THIS IS A FUN CD!
