CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: Atlanta’s master cellist combines instrumental prowess with live-sound-looping, improvisation and storytelling to create singular works that inhabit the intersection of classical, jazz, EDM, reggae and funk. Inspired by African diaspora melodies and narratives, Johnson stretches beyond preconceived notions about the classical Western nature of the cello. — DD
