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

Spontaneous creativity is the key element in jazz music. This is a gathering of bold spontaneous composers lead by one of the fearless adventurers in the world of on-the-spot jazz music creation!

Richard Howell calls his music "Bridge Music" it finds the pathway to make connection linking us together as one. 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. Recorded "live" in Mill Vally, California at the beautiful Throckmorton Theatre by recordist /producer Adrian Wong.

Richard Howell creates "Bridge Music" with the idea of unifying while offering a truce from disagreeable and painful current events.

Musical twist and turns abound makes this exciting listening . over an hour listening from volume one. be sure to purchase volume two .Richard offered a two and half hour concert of never heard prior music a WORLD PREMIERE.

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.

YOU CAN INSPIRE

RICHARD HOWELL

The idea is to make living selling music. I am a professional composer -a songwriter. We are in dire times and I am fortunate to not be starving with plenty of food and a comfortable place to be SHELTER IN PLACE. DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND ME. I need to make a living and get paid. Today (like other days) I want you to have this music FREE and use it to lift your spirits and share with others. if you cannot share with others perhaps be kind enough to purchase.

WE carry each other, we touch each other, we can comfort each other in a crisis. The quarantine can be scary but it is designed to save lives. It is a beautiful act of selflessness to stay put so that lives can be saved. My offer is to inspire others who often do not stay informed and need a little help in understanding that "Shelter In Place" protects everyone. We will get through this -Quarantine does not mean there should be no action, in fact by self-enforcing the "Shelter In Place" with integrity you are helping the health, first responders, care workers, your community, humanity and yourself. Congratulations and thank you>

Take a moment and visit my website RichardHowellandSuddenChanges.com if you do not know Richard Howell (me) -Jazz Music is my way of life, my being, my life's blood forever flowing through my body.

"You Can Inspire" you may categorize it as "Pop'Music (if you think you should) it's soulful spirited jazz to me with lush harmonies indictive of jazz music - however, you wish to call it. Listen to it, feel it and don't think, just feel it. YOU CAN INSPIRE. SHARE THIS MUSIC, SHARE THIS MUSIC -SHARE IT!
