Area of the ’80s golf swing motion, Howard Alden is an excellent guitarist (on both electric powered and acoustic) who also in addition has mastered the seven-string acoustic guitar as well as the banjo. Alden began playing banjo in Dixieland rings in pizza parlors in Southern California. When he obtained a acoustic guitar, he required lessons from Jimmy Wyble and Howard Roberts. He worked well at Disneyland when he was 18 and in 1978 debuted within the big leagues with Crimson Norvo. Since shifting to NY in 1982, Alden spent some time working numerous great veterans (such as for example Ruby Braff, Kenny Davern, Woody Herman, Benny Carter, Monty Alexander, Turn Phillips, and George Vehicle Eps) and contemporaries (including Dan Barrett, Warren Vache, and Ken Peplowski), documenting regularly for Concord and using one event (a Harry Reser tribute arranged) on banjo for Stomp Off. Howard Alden reaches the top from the field among golf swing revivalists yet is flexible plenty of to record a Expenses Evans tribute.
