ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thom Howard never stops exploring new styles and ideas. A wide variety of techniques and genres find their way into his show and are reflected in the music he performs, arranges and writes. Ranging from the energetic and raucous mood of fingerstyle and ragtime styled solo works to the beautiful and intense flamenco and Latin rhythms to the sedate and lyrical music of such classical composers as Ravel, Pachelbel and Scarlatti, Thom can quickly take the audience through several centuries of enjoyable music.

In performances at theaters, festivals, restaurants and coffeehouses, Thom always manages to open the eyes and ears of enthusiastic crowds. Performances can be on a specific theme such as popular tunes, Spanish music, Renaissance or baroque - or the show can be a mixed bag or many styles. Listeners who expect to hear the standard "guy with a guitar" music are surprised to hear a Bach lute suite followed by a Scott Joplin rag, or a Brazilian samba by Jobim leading to a Spanish malaguena.

Thom's first CD, "Sometimes a Guitar is Just a Guitar" showcases the variety of music he performs and writes.

Music for the soul!
"Sometimes a Guitar is just a Guitar" unless it is being played by Thom Howard...Then it is a symphony!

Who came first, Thom Howard or The Doors?
A most lovely and wonderful guitar showcase. My daughter, upon hearing the Asturias introduction, said "Spanish Caravan". He stole it from The Doors". She was summarily readjusted. Thank you for the beauty of this recording.

Great CD with Amazing Fingering!
A terrific variety of music, performed superbly. The instrumental renditions are soft enough to use as background music in any situation, but a bit of volume and you can jam to it. The consolidation of a complete band with vocals into a solo guitar rendition of La Bamba is nothing short of amazing. Even the kids were bopping to it!

The DOORS! Asturias is a classical song written before the DOORS' time.
The DOORS! Asturias is a classical song written before the DOORS' time. Has anyone heard of Albinez? Great job on the songs.
