About the Album

The title track to Howie 61 (Abstract Logix, 2012), Wayne Krantz's latest release and first full-fledged foray into singing, after a couple of tracks featuring the idiosyncratic guitarist's vocals on 2009's Krantz Carlock Lefebvre (also on Abstract Logix). Unlike some artists who take the plunge into vocal music, there are no compromises here, with Krantz's guitar playing as distinct as ever, albeit focused into generally shorter songs. Krantz has been thinking about doing a vocal record since Long to Be Loose (Enja, 1998), and if it's taken him 14 years to get around to it, it's been well worth the wait, with Howie 61 already a contender for one of the year's best.

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.
