Entrapping, calmly-incendiary, luring, provocative-these are only a few ways to describe Daryl Johnson's boon to the jazz realm. His latest album release From The Inside is forty-six minutes of tranquil, yet massively intense jazz; this album is fulminating with artistic invention. All of the tunes on the album are originals of Johnson's except for the standard "You Don't Know What Love is." The album begins with a smooth, hip-hop groove. Throughout the tune, the texture and mood stay subdued. While the feel may be calm, johnson's lines are not; they have a relaxed fierceness.
