Biography

Steve Howe was born in London on April 8, 1947. When he began playing guitar he had quite a few influences, chief among them was Chet Atkins. When you consider that two of the others were Django Reinhardt and the duo of Les Paul & Mary Ford, it is really hard to believe that he would become one of the most influential guitarists in progressive rock. In fact, his first band was a Chuck ... Read more in Amazon's Steve Howe Store

Classic Steve Howe like Steve Howe Album.

Where I Belong changes the setting with a nice country/folk/rock feeling with Steve in good voice.
Grateful Jerry
They really sound like a novice putzing around.

I don't understand the review a couple of posts below, who gave our boy Steve a bad review. His early solo efforts reflected his playing in Yes. This solo album, with his group project Remedy, is not intended to reflect his playing in Yes or early solo output. This album is very eas, and smiple to listen to. Steve Howe is my favorite guitarist, and, being a guitarist, a lot of his Yes stuff, I need to play close attention to, study it. Not this. This is an album you put on as background music to whatever your doing. It's all instrumental except for three songs. His voice has improved amazingly. It's not going to knock your socks off, it's just a deep, husky, singer/songwriter voice, very simple. Great job, Steve, and let's see if the new Yes album can cut it like this one did!

Excellent Recording! It's very Jazz, Improv, and because it's different from previous Steve Howe recordings it means that Steve is still learning to express himself. This CD grows on you everytime you listen to it. Jazz with a horn section is definatively the emphasis on this CD. It's almost like a swing Jazz. I recommend this CD if you want to hear a great guitar player doing something totally different. He isn't giving us the same old "Yes stuff"(I mean this respectfully). I've also begun relistening to Asia. Steve is really great and he is
no. 1 on my top ten guitartist list for this very reason. He never ceasing to amaze me.
Few guitar players do so many things so well!
Track by Track Analysis
Across the Cobblestone - Modern Country Rock, like epic country music
Bee Sting - Improv, Rock reminds me a bit of Turbulence (which is one of his best CD's)
Westwinds - Swing Jazz, Great tune, you'll love it -Cool Jazz with direction.
Where I Belong - Chet Atkins, Rock folk feel. You'll like this too. Classic Steve Howe like Steve Howe Album.
Whiskey Hill - Fast Country tune with driving beat, Great Tune.
The Chariot of Gold - Modern Rock Jazz has a Grand Scheme of Things feel to it. (I like Grand Scheme very much).
Tremolando - Beautiful piece of Music, you feel like you're on a calm lake.
Pacific Haze - Jazz Improv - It's like being in a club - good feel.
Load Off My Mind - Rock tune sound from the late 60's, Verge, Great Keyboard work, he caputured the late 60's perfectly.
Hecla Lava - Experimental Guitar playing thru effects.
Smoke Silver - Has some really nice parts and is fun.
Inside Out Muse - Slow Jazzy Blues - atmospheric tune, has a certain Pink Floyd flavor to it like Shine on You Crazy Diamond.

...He's a MUSICIAN. There's a huge difference. Calling Steve Howe a guitarist is like calling Einstein a "mathematician". Sure, Albert was great at math, but that was only the tool that he used -- his true genius was in uncovering laws and truths about our universe. In much the same way, Howe's genius is in writing, orchestrating and arranging music in an extremely compelling and original way. It so happens that he's a stringed-instrument virtuoso (not just guitar, but pedal steel, mandolin, lute, etc) -- but that's just one of the many tricks the maestro has up his sleeve. He creates music that is rich with tonal colors and textures, and both as a solo artist and with the sublime music of Yes has guided my own musical journey for the majority of my life. On this latest CD, Steve allows himself a considerably greater freedom to explore a multitude of genres than he typically does. There's jazz, there's country (always evident in his compositions. Artfully injected into even the most progressive of pieces, there's usually a way-cool Chet-like lick in there somewhere...), there's blues (yes, Steve plays blues...!), there's classical, and of course there's rock. Steve weaves it all into a tapestry that is rich in color and substance. He is truly a musician first, and an instrumentalist second. On a personal note, I play guitar, and I can honestly say that there has been no greater influence on me than the music - and more importantly the musical approach - of Steve Howe. The notion that all styles can be blended, that all have value, and that all can be woven into a whole greater than the sum of their parts -- THANKS, Steve, for an invaluable lesson and ongoing example.

Its a little annoying at this point when people cant seem to separate Steve's solo work from YES, that why his solo work is usually lukewarmly recieved.
There is no other guitarrist that works the many layers and genres like Howe does. The music in his CD's is NOT YES, and it shouldnt be.
I actually think that Turbulence, Quantum Guitars and Elements are awesome.
This CD just shows that you dont need the 100 mile per hour speed to make relevant guitar music. No one plays the guitar up front in a melodic way like Howe...most just set a rythm and solo in spurts,,,but Howe is the orchestra,,

Not catchy in ordinary way though. Listen to it at least three times with open ears. It's worth it. But it's not very rocky album. Occasionally it has some punch but of R&B type, not rock. Howe is not rock type guitarist. After listenig to this album it became obvious to me. But this is certainly what makes his rock music (in Yes and elsewhere) so original. This album is solo Howe at his best, second to 1979 Steve Howe Album. But unlike the latter it concentrates on jazz, blues and R&B (on SH Album dominate country and classical inspirations). It has also a hint of what is called `new age' (in strange improvisations using digital effects like Hecla Lava). But it's not that boring kind of `new age', only brilliant instrumental minatures. Together with SH Album the Elements give quite complete picture of Howe's diverse influences. It's also musically satisfying as such. For every Yes-fan it's a must. I recommend it to every guitar music lover as well.
