Howl Quartet is a wild, expressive outlet bearing all from the calm and reflective to the outright untamed. Formed of old friends and collaborators, this co-led quartet emerged in 2017 through a collective passion for improvisation and composition and have already built an impressive following.
Taking inspiration from artists such as Endangered Blood, Claudia Quintet and Brian Blade, there is
an innate freedom and creative intensity to their music. Following sold out shows at EFG London Jazz Festival, The Vortex and Kansas Smitty’s, Howl Quartet’s debut album Life As We See It was released in early 2021 and achieved over 100,000 streams on Spotify alone. Airglow was recorded at Giant Wafer Studios in April 2022, engineered by Sonny Johns, mixed and mastered by Alex Killpartrick.
Howl Quartet features: Matt Parkinson – Drums, Dan Smith – Alto Saxophone, Harry Brunt – Tenor Saxophone, Pete Komor – Double Bass.
