I employed straight cuts as well as dissolves, varying the pace by song, and conveying the musical harmony and the harmony between performers.

 Calvin Cody West Johnson appeared on Different Voices TV Show on Friday, April 22nd with Ceasar Johson (bass, vocals) and Larry Presston (drums). They performed songs from their new CD
