A trio of three exceptional players, guitarist Howard Alden appears with double-bass Simon Woolf and saxophonist Alex Garnett at The Crazy Coqs.
"Howard Alden may be the best of his generation."
"… utter assurance…crystalline sound, each note articulate and complete. His solos are succinct, orderly and swinging." The New Yorker
Howard Alden has been a Concord Jazz recording artist since the late '80s where his prolific recorded output as leader, co-leader, and versatile sideman, has captured an artist of consistently astonishing virtuosity and originality.
Recently featured alongside leading players from all over the
world at the 'Bass 2012' convention in Copenhagen, Simon
Woolf is a leading, lyrical double-bassist in the
tradition of his great idol, Red Mitchell.
"...spirited, melodic and swinging." The Observer
"Simon Woolf's bowed bass solo was, I think, the most melodic bass solo I've ever heard!" Lance-bebopspokenhereblogspot.co.uk.
