Howard plays the tunes and improvises on each one, to the accompaniment of stellar guitarist Chris Siebold, and percussionist Miles Levy.

  • Amazing Grace Pt 1

    This is at St. Sabina Church in Chicago. The priest is Father Michael Phleger, an amazing man who has brought up the level of the whole neighborhood through his community and spiritual work. (I forgot to put any info or titles on this.) Michael Drayton is the music director. This was really heavy. Before I played this, I was playing other things with the band and there were people dancing and falling on the floor, etc, right in front of me.

  • Howard on Studio Jams

    In June 2004, I played for the BET show Studio Jams with guitarist Dominick Miller, bassist Doug Wimbish, drummer Will Calhoun, keyboardist Nick Pappas, and percussionist Emedin Rivera. We played 4 tunes of Dominick’s and one of mine. Then, the highlight for me was a free improv where we got really loose. Again, I really look forward to hearing this stuff when it airs.
