FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE!
Never on CD! We're thrilled to present one of Noah Howard's rarest albums and an important missing link in his discography. This exceptional live effort showcases the many facets of his music, including muscular Coltrane-inspired workouts, maniacally energetic stomps, and Latin-inflected celebrations.
Immediate download of 6-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.
