Christian Howes brings his explosive Jazz violin sound to this full length concert DVD entitled Christian Howes & The Horacio Icasto Quartet: Live in Madrid. Lauded as Downbeat Magazine’s #2 rising star, up-and-comer Christian Howes has wowed fellow performers and audiences alike with his explosive violin stylings, uncanny improvisations and a remarkable stage presence that has caused him to be called the "Jazz Paganini."


Christian Howes is just beginning to cast his signature sound and indelible echo onto the world of Jazz. In a corporate musical culture where distinct sounds are cast aside as unmarketable, Howes has shattered the mold, demonstrating the compositional proficiency and improvisational mastery that has made him one of the most sought after young players in Jazz today. Whether working alongside Jazz icons such as Randy Brecker, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Hart, and Dr. John or playing every important Jazz stage from Newport to Birdland, Howes is both a breath of fresh air in the music world and the purveyor of a new sound that is shattering violin stereotypes and captivating music fans and critics yearning for a distinct musical vision


"Howes is a jazz player, first and foremost -- one whose solid,

classically trained technique provides the freedom to fully

express an expansive improvisational imagination"                                                                                               -Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times


Arkadia DVD is proud to present Christian Howes & The Horacio Icasto Quartet: Live in Madrid. This new, exclusive DVD showcases Christian’s expansive electric violin sound, live and up close, for a remarkable viewing experience that is as kind to the eye as it is the ear. Sit back, relax, and soak in Jazz’s next big thing in his first DVD release.


 “Nowadays there are four or five really good jazz violinist,

 but there is nobody better then this guy."               -Les Paul
