Bob Howard made an extraordinary variety of recordings during 1935-38, a sufficient amount of to fill five LPs. Using the reputation of Fatty acids Waller, Howard was agreed upon by Decca as competition but he hardly ever came close regardless of the usage of some significant sidemen. Howard transferred to NY in 1926 and performed being a single action. He was a fixture on 52nd Road in the 1930’s, including on the Hickory Home, Park Central Resort as well as the Famous Door amongst others. Howard documented five choices during 1931-32 for Columbia (three single edges that included his vocals and two duets with trumpeter Manny Klein). A good pianist, Howard trapped solely to goodtime vocals during his Decca period and among the various other players on his information had been Benny Carter (on trumpet and alto), trumpeters Bunny Berigan and Marty Marsala, clarinetists Buster Bailey, Barney Bigard, Cecil Scott and Artie Shaw, pianists Teddy Wilson, Frank Froeba, Zinky Cohn and Billy Kyle, guitarist Teddy Bunn, drummer Cozy Cole, tenorsaxophonist Ben Webster and cornetist Rex Stewart! Nevertheless, after being fell by Decca in 1938, Howard just documented two further music (several obscurities for Atlantic in 1947). Through the past due 1930’s he was at Mamie’s Poultry Shack in NY accompanying vocalist Billy Daniels. Bob Howard continued to be energetic at least in to the 1950’s, having his very own pioneering tv program for a while on CBS but he’s largely ignored today. Fortunately most of his Decca recordings had been reissued on five Lps with the Western european Rarities label in the 1970’s.
