Josh Johnston’s music is very improvisational and he encourages other musicians to improvise as well, even when playing his compositions.

He’s happy to pay if the standard is high enough. In the meantime, please enjoy playing these ones and please encourage your friends to purchase their own copies rather than photocopying or file sharing. Thanks.
