Now's the Time: Christian Howes

No one will ever mistake the playing of jazz violinist Christian Howes with that of the late Kansas City jazz legend Claude "Fiddler" Williams. A new-school technician, Howes' approach is far more aggressive than the relaxed swing associated with Williams. Even so, Howes clearly has a tremendous grasp of jazz tradition. He returns to Jardine's for two shows on Friday, October 29.
