In the 70's, he recorded three outstanding albums for Columbia Records. Yesterday's Dreams was issued in 1976 and features Grover Washington Jr., Lee Ritenour, Ernie Watts, Patrice Rushen, Philip Bailey, Diane Reeves & Sheila E. Wounded Bird. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Hits of Alphonso Johnson June 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you see my review of 'Moonshadows', most of the same words used there apply to this album as well. However, I personally think this is the stronger of the two, as it is a more diverse sounding album. The musicians are similar in make-up (one senses a studio double-booking here). Sheila E, before the Purple One made her a better offer, appears; Grover Washington adds his unique touch to 'Scapegoat'. Each track shows the sheer versatility of the musicians. There's the lilting almost-pop sounding 'Loves The Way I Feel Bout Cha', the strange (but not as much as 'Tales From Barcelona') 'Show Us The Way', strange only because it is sung by Jon Lucien, the man with the deepest voice in Jazz. With 'Balls To The Wall' it picks up the tempo, revs it at the lights and then takes Jazz Rock for a fast drive round the block. Soon its Prog-rock time with 'Flight To Hampstead Heath', though no wizards are summoned; Alphonso provides all the magic. The last track, though it has 'P. Rushen' as the last name in the writing credits, is 100% pure Miss Rushen. This track sounds as if the band got together on the last day and decided to have fun. Take part; I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars all of my dreams. June 18, 2014
By Meechie
Format:Audio CD
I am a fan of Alphonso Johnson. With all of the record shops closing down, it is getting harder and harder to find good music.
I rated this cd a five stars because of the quality of the music.
I would recommend this to cd to anyone who enjoy classy music.

Had it on vinyl years ago and enjoyed it from the you tube website, so I added it to my collection. An all=star cast of musicians including Grover Washington and a teenage Sheila E, this was blend of funk, cool jazz and rock by a Weather Report alumnus. I would prefer it was on a jewel box cd instead of an mp3 download, though.
