Owen Howard

Drummer/Composer Owen Howard (b. June 13, 1965 Edmonton, Canada) began studying drums at the age of 15. As a young up and coming drummer in Edmonton, Owen had many opportunities to perform with many fine Canadian and international artists passing through town. In 1988 Owen received a study grant from the Canada Council for the Arts which enabled him to move to New York to complete his BFA in Jazz from The New School. It was then that Owen began to make his mark in New York.

For the past eighteen years Owen has enjoyed much success in leading his own bands. He currently has four cd's to his credit. Pentagon and Sojourn, on the Koch Jazz label, Days Before and After (co-lead with Andrew Rathbun on Fresh Sound New Talent) and most recently, Time Cycles (Fresh Sound New Talent) released in Dec 2006.

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

Il jazz di scuola europea si caratterizza per una maggior vicinanza alla musica classica e per certe atmosfere placide e riflessive, dove la melodia sembra attaccarsi alla pelle dell'ascoltatore come vento del deserto, e aprire una finestra sull'indagine della propria interiorità. Non fa eccezione The Invariant, ultima fatica del pianista tedesco Benedikt Jahnel, autore degli otto ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Sometimes there's no substitute for experience, as demonstrated by this trio as it celebrates its tenth anniversary as a working unit. Last heard on Equilibrium (ECM, 2012), it's an international group that met through a series of lucky coincidences: Berlin-based pianist/composer Benedikt Jahnel is joined by Spanish bassist Antonio Miguel and Canadian drummer Owen Howard. Jahnel ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The Invariant, as in a “constant," is a fitting title for Benedikt Jahnel Trio who have recorded as a unit since their debut Modular Concepts (Material label, 2008) and later moving on to the ECM label with Equilibrium (2012). Jahnel, a musician and mathematician in Berlin, has a deep appreciation for complex similarities between the two ...

Brooklyn Jazz Underground: Seven by Seven

Read "Seven by Seven" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Settetto molto compatto, solido, il Brooklyn Jazz Underground pratica un jazz non particolarmente avventuroso ma comunque ben congegnato e condotto, col ruolo-guida che passa dalla voce (persino iperpresente nella prima parte dell'album) alla tromba, al sax tenore. Ci sono delle ripetizioni e un asservimento al canto a volte persino eccessivo, quasi supino, tuttavia il lavoro prende ...

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.
