George Howard was born September 15, 1956 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the late 1970s, he began touring with Grover Washington, Jr., who was one of his idols. In the early 1980s, Howard released his first and second studio albums, Asphalt Gardens and Steppin' Out. Both albums were well received
and ranked high on the Billboard magazine jazz album charts at number 25 and 9, respectively. I did this interview with George
in the early 90's. He talk candidly about his musical career and his life. I feel this is a very touching interview. George will tell you he is not a Jazz musician he is a musician.
George Howard pass March 29, 1998 of lymphoma. His beautiful spirit is truly miss, but his music will live on. Enjoy this interview with George Howard.
