Howard Alden

    Howard Alden is one of a handful of up and coming guitarists bringing the seven string archtop guitar to the forefront of jazz in the tradition of the legendary George Van Eps. His prowess as a single-string improviser is daunting and his insight into fretboard harmony and chord construction is second to none.

    Born in Newport Beach, California in 1958, Howard began playing guitar and tenor banjo as a child. Alden's early influences were Louis Armstrong, Barney Kessel, and Charlie Christian. He later developed a passion for the harmonies and textures in the music of Bill Evans and Thelonious Monk. In 1982 he moved to New York City where he still resides.

    Howard Alden was voted "Best Emerging Guitar Talent" in the first annual Jazz Times critics poll in 1990 and "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" in the '92, '93, '95, and '96 Downbeat critics polls. In November 1997, Alden performed at the opening of the world famous Chinery Exhibition at the Smithsonian Institute's Museum of American History. He continues to challenge his creativity by performing in different instrumental combinations and settings.
