    No he's not related to Steve Howe...

    He is a virtuoso guitarist though, but more tuneful and tasteful than say a Malmsteen or Satriani, IMO.

    Heard a few tunes off the Ascend CD and it has a real proggy sound to it, albeit with no lyrics.

    Altho I got into his group Howe II (clever, huh?) with the '89 release High Gear http://www.djangomusic.com/images/co...592706FIO5.jpg and '90 release Now Hear This.http://www.djangomusic.com/images/co...62057FVPG5.jpg Amazing stuff, but it has his brother Al on vocals, unlike the later releases that have no vocals. Reminds me a little of fusionistic Van Halen.

    I also have Hyperacuity, http://www.djangomusic.com/images/co...18216e412t.jpg which sounds more like it'd be along the lines of Ascend.

    Incredible player, idden he? Let me know if you get Ascend, and we could be talkin' trade. ;)

    Oh Yeah! He is awesome indeed. I have a disk of Howe-Woote-Chambers called Extraction that kicks butt!
