Sound and Vision: My Interview with Howard Fishman

(Painting of Howard Fishman with band by artist Clifford Bailey)

Howard Fishman and his band play a unique mix of jazz, blues, rock, and old New Orleans-style music. Howard, a self-taught guitarist, began his musical career as many do, busking in the streets of New York and New Orleans. That was 10 years ago....since then Howard has done a great many things, played a great many places, and exposed a great many people to his takes on how music can be created and heard. His is truly a unique and original voice.

I, however, need a new verb beyond "interesting," as you'll hear when you listen to the interview. But I couldn't help it, Howard is just that.
