Album Notes
The Howland/Imboden Project is an all instrumental jazz/rock/fusion project with a strong emphasis on songs and a good dose of improvisation as well.

The project features Keith Howland on guitar and Tris Imboden on drums, both current members of the legendary band Chicago.

Also featured on the disc are fellow Chicago bandmates Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Bill Champlin, and Jason Scheff as well as Jeff Babko (keys, Simon Phillips), Jimmy Earl (bass, Chick Corea, Robben Ford), David Garfield (keys, Los Lobotomys), Lance Morrison (bass, Don Henley), Kevin Ricard (percussion, Stevie Wonder), Mark Russo (sax, The Yellowjackets, Doobie Bros.), Steve Weingart (keys, Dave Weckl Band), and Horace Williamson (keys, Sam I Am).

The project was great fun to make as there were no preconcieved notions for a direction or any restrictions.

The disc has 60 minutes of music ranging from straight ahead rock to latin tinged jazz.

We did not set out to make a certain type of record, we just set out to make ourselves happy making music.

Hopefully you will enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!

This is a tremendous CD! All the great music and variations are just wonderful. Parts bring me back to the old days of Chicago, especially song #9 where Jimmy Pankow is at his best. Chicago should incorporate these songs on their next tour, it would be very deserving to Keith and Tris. This is a must have CD for all Chicago fans. If you haven't heard it, you don't know what you're missing.

Jeff Plackemeier

Innovative, jazzy and edgy!
Innovative and jazzy with an edge! Nice background music in the Chicago VII vein. Almost an ersatz Chicago album in its own right due to the participation of nearly every current member.

Scott Green

Unrestrained -Unincumbered-Unrelenting Rock and Roll
HIP inbodies what I wish the entire band would participate in....straight ahead honest to God effort with real results!
Good music will sell itself...HIP is great music! Howland screams to be heard and Imboden rolls from one cut to the next with seamless effort. How about a HIP Jam at the next CHICAGO SHOW?!

CD Baby

An all instrumental jazz/rock/fusion project with a strong emphasis on songs, featuring current members of the band Chicago: Keith Howland on guitar and Tris Imboden on drums. A great jazz album... be sure to check out track 9, "Inching Towards...?".

Another fine effort from quality musicians
These are outstanding musicians that write solid material and deliver the goods. I love instrumental music that's both intelligent and powerful, and that's what we have here. According to my tastes, the only thing that keeps this CD from a 5-star rating is that synthesizers should be extinct by now and it's utilized regretably for solos on this project. I'd love to see this band go with an organic approach and replace the 80's-like synthesizer with piano and B3 organ fills and solos.


It´s really very great! I love it!!


if you want to hear what these two members of Chicago are capable of...BUY IT

Oh, you two, what can I say except I loved this CD. It is wonderful to listen to, especially when I am having a hard day at work. Keep up the wonderful work.

Walt Flesner

Awesome, fresh, upbeat, shows off great talent!
Awesome CD, even better than I expected! The music was fresh, original, exciting, upbeat, and shows off the great talents of Keith and Tris that seem to be overlooked when with the Chicago format. I would love to hear more!
