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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
