About this Event

Richard Howell will continue the celebration of independence, tenacity and exuberance rocketing the spirited fireworks of his West Coast mobile party to the East Coast. Howell will be debuting new music from S.F. Bay Area as well as feeling the soul of NYC also creating improvised music on the spot to capture and ignite the bi-coastal vibe that is American . He will draw on our musical influence that span the globe of World Music, Funk , Jazz , Soul and the feel good celebration of love and life. This is what LOVE sounds like.

Richard Howell is an acclaimed musician, composer and educator whose music celebrates diversity as it bridges, unites and merges the experience of all listeners. He defines it as "Bridge Music." "Bridge Music" is a jazz pathway over obstacles that joins differences and links through the sonic connection. Its roots are based in the spirit of John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme," in the contradiction of James Brown's simplistic yet complicated African inspired rhythmic concepts to the deep soulfulness of the Isley Brothers forever touching our hearts.

He has performed and recorded with numerous pop, soul, and jazz music icons such as Etta James, Chaka Khan and Maurice White and the new voices of jazz, Christian Scott and Tunde Adjuah. He has toured the globe from America to Africa including the Zellerbach Hall and the Royal Albert Hall and participated in the Newport and New Orleans Jazz Festivals.

Today he lectures Jazz History with JazzTree Education internationally. He is an intricate part of Oaktown Jazz Workshops, an active saxophonist, and educator a producer of jazz, funk, world and pop music. He also leads two extremely innovative Jazz ensembles, RHQuartet and Richard Howell and Sudden Changes.

"One of the very special releases of 2018 for me is the new album by Richard Howell and Sudden Changes, “Coming of Age Mangaku." Saxophonist and composer Richard Howell, original from the S.F. Bay Area (yeah, we like to claim him!) has always been a “talent deserving wider recognition." On his new release, he uses several notable musicians, including the incredible Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah on trumpet and the wonderful Charles McNeal on alto. The album also features his son Elé on drums. A record that has one foot in the jazz tradition and the other drawing influence from multiple cultures, I sense a strong African feel throughout. Highly recommended.”
