Michael Howell’s album, “In the Silence” was instrumental in the Jake Feinberg Show going from a fantasy to a reality. When I chose to go in the direction of jazz this was one of the albums that propelled me to track down the unsung heroes of the early 1970′s. Bassist Henry Franklin gave instant credibility (by playing!) to the show that I promoted in South Central. Since than I have interviewed Ndugu and today I got my crack at Michael. It was well worth the wait.
