**2020 stock** Noah Howard should need no introduction. The American alto saxophonist was born in1943 in New Orleans, who moved to Europe in 1968, and eventually settled in Brussels after living in Paris and Nairobi. He was a member of the avant-garde jazz movement of the 1960s and, amongst many influential albums, made the seminal Black Ark album with Arthur Doyle in 1969. This album came about as a result of Justin Wiggan’s love of Howard’s music. 5 years after Howard’s death in 2010, Justin was in touch with his wife, Lieve Fransen, and learnt that Noah had made a large number of private recordings playing solo on the alto saxophone. Lieve kindly gave Justin access to these recordings and the freedom to develop an album in which he built electronic soundscapes around these solo passages. He then asked bass player Chris Mapp to add bass lines to the foundation. The resulting music has been composed and edited by Wiggan to form the two sides of this album. A record packing so much protein that it needed two labels to release it in a first time co-release between Dirter Promotions and Static Caravan.

Vinyl album ONLY in an edition of 500 copies (with download code).  The LP is packaged in a wonderful 1960’s style cover, complete with gloss front and a matt back to the sleeve.
