"Howard Alden is a brilliantly inventive and comprehensive guitarist with chops for days,

a  rare artist who's unaffected by time and trend. He continues the legacy of his mentor George Van Eps, but is without question a pathfinder in his own right, and one of America's finest artists. Highly recommended." - Jim Carlton, Just Jazz Guitar, August 2014      "Californian Alden is one of the greatest jazz guitarists working today. He learned his craft under the legendary Howard Roberts, and his jaw-dropping fretwork has graced everything from Hollywood soundtracks to duets with George Van Eps." - Musicradar   *  Geoff, Simon and Spike, fresh from their sell-out gigs of March and April, will need no introduction.
