“Richard Galliano is…a master improviser.… With rigor and virtuosic flair in his extraordinary playing.”—JazzTimes

Columbus’s own jazz violin star Christian Howes regularly shares the spotlight with major talent. For this special project he has outdone himself. More than a few of you will fondly recall our 2006 concert with the amazing French jazz accordion ace Richard Galliano, who thrilled us with his brilliant bop-inspired style, deep chops, and improvisational verve. Galliano now returns to join up with Howes, pianist Josh Nelson, and a great rhythm section to support their dynamic interplay. 

Together they’ll play strong original material by Howes and Galliano, as well as their own takes on compositions with a Latin jazz flavor, including Brazilian favorites and Argentine tango. (Galliano is known as one of the foremost interpreters of the music of tango master Astor Piazzolla.) For a preview, check out Southern Exposure, Howes’s new recording featuring Galliano on Resonance Records. This is sure to be a fantastic night of jazz fireworks at close range, so be there when Howes and Galliano light the fuse.
