Francis Johnson (composer) is within the scope of the Composers WikiProject, a group of editors writing and developing biographical articles about composers of all eras and styles. The project discussion page is the place to talk about technical and editorial issues and exchange ideas. New members are welcome!
I've reviewed this article as part of the Composers project review of its B-class articles. This article was raised to B by a bot, because the Biography project rating was B. I find this rating is not deserved -- the article is missing some things expected of biographies, and other things expected of composer biographies. My full review is on the comments page; questions and comments should be left here or on my talk page. Magic♪piano 13:54, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I own a CD called "The Music of Francis Johnson" (Music Masters Jazz, 1994). It includes compositions purported to be Johnson's as well as those of some of his contemporaries. Most of the music could be described as band music, performed on the instruments of the era. Therefore I was surprised to see in the article the claim that none of his music survives except piano scores. Can anyone provide any illumination?Carlaclaws (talk) 16:36, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
