The NYC Jazz Record’s Ken Waxman reviews ‘Live at Glenn Miller Café’

“More than a typical nightclub set, the untitled tracks that make up this passionate and high-quality performance from 2000 also serve as an inadvertent retrospective of saxophonist Noah Howard’s long career.

Speech given by Noah’s wife Lieve Fransen at the occasion of Noah’s birthday on April 6

When Noah was writing his autobiography he wanted it to be about the Music in his Soul. Noah ‘s musical legacy is the collection of 200 or so compositions.
