Howell is joined on the date by front line special guests trombonist Michael Dease and trumpet player Joe Magnarelli, and receives solid support from his rhythm section of pianist Art Hirahara, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Luther Allison. This hard-hitting session really swings solidly from beginning to end, and will certainly delight straight forward jazz fans everywhere.
