    Among the elite jazz musicians in the country, Christian Howes is both a stellar performer and studio recorder and is well respected as a strings educator and clinician. The Minneapolis Tribune calls him “arguably the most intriguing young violinist in jazz”, while the Chicago Reader says: “Not since Jean-Luc Ponty has a violinist ranged from pure classical to fuzz tone rock to convincing jazz with such authority.” Christian has been awarded the #2 spot in Downbeat magazine’s Critics Poll four times as “Rising Star” jazz violinist.
