George Howard

George Howard's polished fusion of funk, jazz, and urban soul helped the soprano saxophonist become one of the most popular contemporary jazz performers of the '80s and '90s. Since he concentrated on groove and overall sound instead of improvisation, Howard never received much attention from jazz critics, but he retained a large audience well into his second decade of performing.

Howard began his musical career in the late '70s. He received his first break when Grover Washington, Jr., one of his musical idols, invited him on a tour in 1979. The tour helped establish Howard's name, and in 1982 he released his debut album, Asphalt Garden, on Palo Alto. The record was a moderate hit, as was its follow-up, 1984's Steppin' Out. It wasn't until the 1985 release of Dancing in the Sun that Howard earned a large audience. The album reached number one on the contemporary jazz charts. Following the release of Dancing in the Sun, he moved to MCA, where he issued A Nice Place to Be, Reflections, Personal, and Love Will Follow. All four records were considerable successes on the charts.

In 1991, Howard signed to GRP, releasing his label debut, Love and Understanding, that year. It was followed by Do I Ever Cross Your Mind in 1992 and When Summer Comes in 1993. A Home Far Away was released in 1994, and Attitude Adjustment was issued in 1996. All of his GRP recordings were quite successful, confirming his place among the most popular contemporary jazz performers of the '90s. His first five years with GRP, plus a selection of his MCA recordings, were summarized on 1997's The Very Best of George Howard.

Howard returned to recording with Midnight Mood, which was released in January 1998. Sadly, it was the last record he would release in his lifetime. He died unexpectedly on March 29, 1998. A few months later, his last recording -- a version of Sly Stone's There's a Riot Goin' On, which was conceived as part of Blue Note's cover series -- was released. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

A Standard', NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT! miss where you would have gone next!
Not a great profile read by STE but George was one of the ones that kicked off the contemporary jazz set for me in the late 80's. Saw him @ the Blue Note in the summer of '93 and what I remember most was that he jammed. And he was also a gentleman. Saddened by the loss. Thanks for the music...
His musical talents provided pleasant and soothing listening!
Very smooth man want forget thanks
George your music lives on
He was and remains one of my favorite jazz artists
Nice George very relaxing.

You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day ofyour life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is scary cause it really works
I love you soft and smooth sound very relaxing.

I love his interpretati o n of this song. It is sad that he is gone too soon. RIP George Howard.
While stationed in Germany, I realized the gift that George Howard shared with the world. His music helped me through those military nights when only prayers from family was getting me through. Boy is he missed, but his music will last forever and a day.
