Product Description

Christian Howes brings his explosive Jazz violin sound to this full length concert DVD, recorded live from Madrid. Lauded as Downbeat Magazine's #2 rising star, up-and-comer Christian Howes has wowed fellow performers and audiences alike with his explosive violin stylings, uncanny improvisations and a remarkable stage presence that has caused him to be called the 'Jazz Paganini.'

Christian Howes is just beginning to cast his signature sound and indelible echo onto the world of Jazz. In a corporate musical culture where distinct sounds are cast aside as unmarketable, Howes has shattered the mold, demonstrating the compositional proficiency and improvisational mastery that has made him one of the most sought after young players in Jazz today. Whether working alongside Jazz icons such as Randy Brecker, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Hart, and Dr. John or playing every important Jazz stage from Newport to Birdland, Howes is both a breath of fresh air in the music world and the purveyor of a new sound that is shattering violin stereotypes and captivating music fans and critics yearning for a distinct musical vision.

Arkadia DVD is proud to present Christian Howes & The Horacio Icasto Quartet: Live in Madrid. This new, exclusive DVD showcases Christian's expansive electric violin sound, live and up close, for a remarkable viewing experience that is as kind to the eye as it is the ear. Sit back, relax, and soak in Jazz's next big thing in his first DVD release.

Howes is among the best jazz violinists on the scene. This DVD of a 2002 club concert in Madrid captures him at his best, with a fine Spanish quartet backing him up. Horacio Icasto is an impressive pianist. Highlights include Adios Nonino, Nuages, and Madrid Blues, but all tunes are well worth hearing. Excellent audio and video. Howes is the real deal!
