“…A brilliant virtuoso whose complete control over the clarinet and originality as both an improviser and a composer are very impressive…This is the most impressive debut by a jazz clarinetist in decades. One waits with anticipation to see what Joseph Howell comes up with next…” world-famous jazz writer, Scott Yanow (of the All Music Guide to Jazz)
“...Most of the music Howell selected would have fit comfortably on a Blue Note release from the mid-sixties, sort of straddling the divide between the absolute mainstream and more adventurous stuff...the originals served the clarinetist well as improvisational vehicles for his astonishing technical abilities...” Robert Bush, San Diego Reader
“…Howell has studied under the great tenor Jerry Bergonzi, and he's taken those lessons to heart. That he delivers his improvisations on an instrument that almost qualifies as ‘rare’ in contemporary jazz just makes it that much more satisfying…” Greg Simmons, All About Jazz
“Joseph Howell is an astounding jazz clarinetist — a virtuoso with complete command of the instrument, a historian who knows the work of his predecessors inside and out, and a creative, original improviser who sounds like no one else. I expect that he will be one of the most important players of his generation in extending the role of the clarinet in modern jazz.” Allan Chase, Chair of Ear Training, Berklee School of Music
