“It was in April 1974 that Howard cut the ‘Live at the Swing Club’ in Turin, for Calumet Records. The session features Howard alongside Michael Smith on piano, Noel McGhie on drums and Bob Reid on bass. This was a very busy period for Howard, and he cut a series of albums for a variety of labels including ‘Live in Europe’ (featuring a epic version of Trane’s ‘Olé’), ‘Berlin Concert’, ‘Red Star’ (featuring bebop legend Kenny Clarke), and ‘Schizophrenic Blues’…
The original, critically-acclaimed ”Live at the Swing Club” was recorded in Turin in 1974 – 40 years later we have proudly authorized the re-release of this wonderful LP which will be ready for Noah’s birthday in April.

“Saxophonist Arthur Doyle died January 25 in Alabama; he was 69. Doyle had one of the fiercest, most unfettered saxophone styles in all of jazz; he got his first break in 1969, when he appeared on Noah Howard‘s The Black Ark.

I said, well, fuck it, I’ll put him inside my compositions and just let him express himself and do his thing.” To my ear, it’s that combination of Doyle’s wild, full-blast playing and Howard’s structured, relatively melodic (for 1969 free jazz) compositions that make The Black Ark one of his most successful outings on record.”

This CD captures Howard in the prime of his life and is a fitting memorial for a jazz survivor.” Read more
