Though I organized a few concerts and published my first interview on Coda with him in the seventies, I must confess that I did not care too much about Noah Howard's music, I thought he was one of the many, at the time, disciples of Coltrane. I was wrong and some recordings like this seem to evidence a unique voice that will be definetely missed. Thank you.

Thanks for this three-part Noah Howard series. The way things look, there's not much of a chance of the FMPs being reissued which is highly unfortunate.

Not sure it would be right to share the two SAJ albums here... also they're not my rips and likely have been around in the web (where I got them from, if memory serves me right - I can't recall for sure though).

Anyway, more live Howard will follow - I'm just too exhausted these days... hopefully day after tomorrow more will be up!
