Great Stuff!
This is really an excellent album. Everything Howell and his group does is satisfyingly adventurous, yet supremely entertaining. On this recording you will find a truly amazing balancing act between entertainment and exploration.

Joseph is a virtuosic player, to say the least. But his humor and style make this recording worthy of several back-to-back hearings. Joseph twists his fingers around some sophisticated figures for sure.

The players he's assembled here compliment his style perfectly, and they play an active role in all of his tunes.

The standout track for me is "The Pot Melts." It REALLY grooves. I only wish it was longer!

This is NOT YOUR OLD UNCLE LARRY on clarinet. It's new, hip, and really fun to listen to. You won't regret buying it, I promise.
