To celebrate the imminent close of a UK tour and the announcement of a new project that will see him sprinkling his very own jazz stardust over David Bowie’s ‘Low’ and ‘Heroes’ with The Subterraneans, Dylan Howe has slashed the price of the critically-acclaimed Dylan Howe Quintet releases Translation Volume One and Translation 2: Standards & Previews’, to a not-to-be-sniffed-at £10. That’s just one nice, crisp copy of HRH’s face – AKA half price! Click on myspace.com/dylanhowe to spend your pennies wisely.
These guys don’t make a habit of doing things by halves, though, as anyone lucky enough to catch Dylan Howe and The Subterraneans reworking Bowie greats with jazz magic, space-age strings and electronics at London’s Cargo on 21 and 25 November will find out. “Dylan Howe makes it new. The way he plays it, it’s as if be-bop were still hot and wet from its Harlem womb,” says the legendary Robert Wyatt of Howe and his music. Hot, wet AND the possibility of men in Ziggy-style glittery platforms? That gig sounds too good to miss.
