A LOVE SUPREME- revisiting the music of John Coltrane

RICHARD HOWELL

In cart Not available Out of stock

The music of John Coltrane has been enjoyed worldwide by the audience and performed by almost every jazz musician on the planet. There have been movements, spiritual awakenings, and transformations just from the iconic album A LOVE SUPREME. Because of its devotion, beauty, and perfection, I was hesitant to record the album. But, I have had the privilege to perform music by John Coltrane on many stages in various configurations as a sideman and as a leader. I gathered a younger generation of musicians who are devoted to this music and I made a choice to record A LOVE SUPREME with so much joy and conviction offered to it. I thought it unfair to not release it. For many, the original album by John Coltrane is sacred ground. Oh, I understand I feel that way myself. But I believe John Coltrane's offering was also created to be enjoyed by others as well as expressing his spiritual devotion. This is our offering to the spirit and the creator. We give thanks and praise to John Coltrane as well. This album has not been advertised as released. If you heard it on your local radio station or live stream it was offered here. Please enjoy. Elé Salif Howell fully expressed on drums, Nick Panoutsos solidly performing bass, Ian McArdle soothing our soul with piano, Jasim Perales bringing another beauty of surprise on trombone. I trust you will find this album invigorating.

MOON OVER TIBURON

RICHARD HOWELL

In cart Not available Out of stock

The anticipated album for an award-winning composer. One of the many highlights of this album is the remake of the critically acclaimed song “WE ARE ALL CONNECTED” I kept getting request to rerelease the original after it had been performed at memorials, Passover seder, union meeting openings, gatherings involving unity and performed at middle school and high school combo bands in all parts of the world, it even made to the Oval Office during the Obama Administration A song of the times, I chose to offer another version with the thought of it connecting even more people, again bring light.

Hold on folks we are indeed having the time of our lives from the pandemic, untruth, global unrest, and the like. It has always been for decades my honor and position to create art that contains healing properties as well as address social change, today's events are no different I continue to share art expressing positivity, love, compassion, honesty unabashed while fearless to hold those accountable in the most respectful manner recalling first the golden rule.

“Moon Over Tiburon” my first solo album in a while. There were plans to record in 2020 with my group Richard Howell and Sudden Changes. Covid-19 reminded us we all faced sudden changes. we were shelter-in place-locked down. Prior to the lockdown, I enlisted alumni from my group RHQ like the soulful virtuoso pianist Frederick Harris and bassist Gary Brown and from Richard Howell and Sudden Changes the extraordinary talents of Elé Salif Howell and David Frazier while introducing a few bright and talented younger creatives, trombone prodigy Jasim Perales, dynamic bassist Nick Panoutsos and spirited pianist Ian McArdle. The album enjoyed an incredible mix of multi-generational souls bringing light to the darkness. the CD WILL be available for the holidays In memory of Victor McElhaney.

DEDICATED to the families worldwide who suffered the loss of a loved one from Covid

The "bridge construction crew" : Glen Pearson is free flowing and on point playing piano, he keeps you spellbound. David Frazier offers undeniable grooves steeped in African folklore and history. David Ewell laid foundations of bass groove with a special attention to respecting silence and space. Bold ,courageous and brave is the approach of drummer Ele Salif Howell clearly tribal and African ceremonial. With a strong sense of the masters and fluent style Rafa Postel stands tall in his musical presence as a soulful trumpeter.

Bandleader, producer ,award winning composer, spontaneous composer, undaunted with living in the moment saxophonist Richard Howell contributed to the support of what Love sounds like.

UH UH NO-STOP THE HATE

RICHARD HOWELL

In cart Not available Out of stock

One day sitting with my grandmother I expressed and incident of injustice -"I hate these people who cause so much pain ..." She said to me "Uh uh no, don't hate baby!" I learned not to fight hate with hate "Tha's not the way!' she wasn't passive, she simply didn't want the ugly of hate in my heart. "Just love and fight against injustice!" it amazed me all the injustice she experienced to say this to me.

The SONGvideo is on Youtube -the track I have here for sale. Your purchase helps me to continue to create I appreciate your support. THANK YOU.
