Welcome. I am happy you are here.
The new album by Richard Howell A LOVE SUPREME revisits the iconic album by the great composer saxophonist John Coltrane. There was much hesitation in recording this album due to my personal opinion not to touch perfection. But what I recall was the album touched so many musician's lives that simply wanted to play the music in John Coltrane's honor. I performed his music live in serval ensembles and configurations with much success and deep appreciation. Mr.Coltrane himself made the limited performance of his compositions from A LOVE SUPREME. Therefore course was only one John Coltrane who played saxophone on another level I can only dream to achieve regardless of the time I put on the horn practicing. But, after many requests to at the very least record my feelings of A Love Supreme, I gathered a younger ( than myself) group of stellar musicians that grew up listening to the album and longed to play the music of 'Trane. The album has NOT been announced to the public but it is available to be purchased here at the online store (above) You can call the a "soft opening" I believe it will be released in Summer 2021 officially

COVID-19 has everyone deeply concerned if not totally horrified. The call is to remain positive, smart, connected, compassionate, and giving when you can. I am blessed to be naturally creative with ideas flowing constantly. In fact, I have to pretend sometimes and ignore entire symphonic pieces in my head. Playing the saxophone, percussion, bass and other instruments is a developed skill yet still to master. Creating is a divine gift I am grateful to be able to share the fruit of its existence. We will get through this crisis by following the science, being thoughtful of others, coming together in the heart if not physical at the moment. Together As One is my call. This crisis does have the ability to unite us. Take a moment and Dance, dance like nobody is watching, dance until you cry from gratitude that you can, Dance in honor of someone who cannot. Dance, Dance Dance and feel what I am offering because it is for you. YOU CAN INSPIRE!
