Blue Monk part 2 On his stunning KHAEON label CD debut, Columbus, Ohio-born jazz violinist Christian Howes presents an acoustic trio date with Buenos Aires-born pianist Federico Lechner and the Spanish bassist Pablo Martin, recorded in Madrid in November 2001. On this wide-ranging collection of band originals, and highly characterful arrangements of jazz standards by Thelonius Monk (“ Blue Monk”), Bill Evans (“Very Early') and Miles Davis (“Blue in Green”), the trio demonstrates a wide range of stylistic influences, from swing and bebop over tango to avant-garde jazz and classical music. “Magic occurred in those first two evening sessions," remembers Christian Howes. “Nearly all of the performances on this album were first takes, and some were actually first readings of tunes by at least one of the musicians.” Not yet thirty, Howes has already made an indelible mark as one of the world's leading jazz violinists, both acoustic and electric. In the widely regarded 2002 Down Beat Readers' Poll, Howes reached the # 4 position in the Violinists / “Talent Deserving Wider Recognition” category. Howes has performed on the stages of the Newport, Toronto, and Ottawa jazz festivals, in NYC at Birdland, Iridium, the Knitting Factory, the Village Vanguard, as well as in Spain, China and Japan. His performances have earned praise from critics including The L.A. Times, The Boston Globe, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Washington Post, The L.A. Jazz Scene, Jazz Times, and more.

The (not so?) funny insults I receive about my violin playing

If you’re tired of fighting with your inner critic, know this:
It’s common for musicians of all ages and abilities to feel anxious and//or have self-doubting thoughts.
I and many of my adult students and colleagues struggle with insecurities. If this applies to you, you’re far from alone.
