DYLAN HOWE – SUBTERRANEAN: NEW DESIGNS ON BOWIE’S BERLIN
Attempting a jazz interpretation of David Bowie’s classic Berlin era is no easy task, but not in the able hands of drummer Dylan Howe. Howe’s primarily self-taught drum chops are formidable but his arranging skills are equally up to the task. Howe and core band members Ross Stanley, Mark Hodgson and Brandon Allen don’t attempt to cover Bowie; they reinvent it into something original. Steve Howe makes a guest appearance, as well. “Neukoln” and “Moss Garden” both set a nice tone.
