Live jazz, artists, venues and education in Leicester
Dylan Howe is a British drummer best known for leading his quintet and other jazz groups since 2002 and his tenures with Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Steve Howe and Wilko Johnson, coupled with extensive session work since 1990, playing with Nick Cave, Damon Albarn, Ray Davies, Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Beth Gibbons, Gabrielle, Hugh Cornwell and Andy Sheppard amongst many others. Recently Dylan played on the no.1 album Going Back Home by Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey, with sell-out shows at Londonâ€™s Shepherds Bush Empire and Royal Albert Hall. The album has now sold in excess of 150,000 units and a follow up is planned for later in 2015. In 2014 Dylan released his highly acclaimed new album: Subterranean â€“ New Designs On Bowieâ€™s Berlin. A radical new take on the instrumental cuts from David Bowieâ€™s 1977 albums Low and â€œHeroesâ€. This new album (his sixth) is the natural progression from his acclaimed 2010 Stravinsky adaptation The Rite Of Spring for piano and drums, and his Blue Note styled hard bop quintet albums Translation â€“ Volumes 1 and 2. It has garnered universal international acclaim â€“ with official endorsement from David Bowie himself â€“ stating: â€˜Thatâ€™s a top-notch album youâ€™ve got there. Really.â€™ Dylan toured the record in late 2014 in the UK with many sold out concerts and has a number of dates in 2015 with the project, including Londonâ€™s Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre in February as well as European festival shows later in the year. 2015 is looking to be a busy year for Howe with worldwide touring with Wliko Johnson, touring with his own group as well as a new album release with the Steve Howe Trio. Howe, always inspiring and invigorating in any genre.â€™ â€˜THE GUARDIAN â€˜A superb player.â€™ THE OBSERVER
