"Hi all. This is Marcus Johnson and I had to give some clarification to one of the above reviews. It is a common misconception that Inter Alia was released after Chocolate City Groovin. Actuatlly, Inter Alia was originally released on the Marimelj Label almost one year before N2K release Chocolate City Groovin with the same tracks. Once N2K was sold we had the ability to re-release the original version of the CD, which actually has more tracks than Chocolate City Groovin. Many people say that it has a much better feel.Therefore, there is no lack of new material, and by God's grace there never will be. I would recommend that you check this CD out first and have the true Marcus Johnson expericence."

"Marcus Johnson showed [it all] on this CD. He is so talented it's sick. I highly recommend this album if you just wanna chill by a fireplace with some wine and your sweetheart... That's how good the love songs are on this album. When Marcus will get his due? I have no idea but it's long overdue. He deserves respect for his talent and his taste in music."
A very mixed bag!

"Recorded in four different locations this album captures a wide range of styles from Marcus Johnson.The best cuts are the slower tracks, particularly "Love talks and slow jams" and both versions of "Morning Light".The bonus tracks (10 to 12) are significant remixes of tracks included in the main body of the CD, and I prefer the remix of "Wont you let me love you" to the other version.Quite why there's another version of "Chocolate City Groovin'" is difficult to fathom, unless Johnson had too little material recorded for a complete album. Of the up tempo tracks "The Neck Factor" and "Doc's Groove" are the pick.This is a highly listenable smooth jazz album, though "Chocolate City Groovin"" might be a better place to start your Marcus Johnson CD collection."
