Drummer and rising UK jazz star Dylan Howe is being hailed as the saviour of the ďMessengerís SoundĒ according to critics in London this week. Dylan and his quintet set out on a national tour of the UK starting next January but have been treating a few select jazz clubs to a sneak preview of the material that will form most of his second album due out next summer. His first album ďThe Way I Hear ItĒ on OT Records is getting him a lot of attention in both the jazz and national press, and his concerts are selling out very quickly.
The follow up album, as yet untitled, will feature a guest appearance by Dylanís father, ďYesĒ guitarist and rock legend Steve Howe as well as a few other surprise cameos. Dylan first came to prominence on the UK music scene while drumming for Ian Dury and The Blockheads, where he first met Gilad Atzmon who guests on sax on ďThe Way I Hear ItĒ, but has always prefered jazz and has now chosen to make it his life. Dylan will be at the Royal Festival Hall on 16th January 2004.
