Fiona's Comments

Novelty is a beautiful discovery. There are a selection of smooth jazz/soul gems on the IYOUWE label worth a delve for late night radio DJs.

About the Album

Tenor saxophonist, award winning composer, and producer Richard Howell is a Bay Area treasure who has come into his own as a bandleader after decades of producing and supporting other artists. San Francisco's KQED aptly describes Howell as a jazz "Jedi master," COMING OF AGE - MANGAKU has a strong spiritual component and is an album of honest original Richard Howell compositions. The albums introduces Howell's youngest son, Elé Salif Howell, a spirited teenaged drummer joined by the virtuosic pianist Frederick Harris, veteran bassist Ravi Abcarian, and scorching alto saxophonist Charles McNeal, with an appearance from "Stretch Music" pioneer trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah.
