The Howland/Imboden Project is an all instrumental jazz/rock/fusion project with a strong emphasis on songs and a good dose of improvisation as well.
The project features Keith Howland on guitar and Tris Imboden on drums, both current members of the legendary band Chicago.
Also featured on the disc are fellow Chicago bandmates Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Bill Champlin, and Jason Scheff as well as Jeff Babko (keys, Simon Phillips), Jimmy Earl (bass, Chick Corea, Robben Ford), David Garfield (keys, Los Lobotomys), Lance Morrison (bass, Don Henley), Kevin Ricard (percussion, Stevie Wonder), Mark Russo (sax, The Yellowjackets, Doobie Bros.), Steve Weingart (keys, Dave Weckl Band), and Horace Williamson (keys, Sam I Am).
The project was great fun to make as there were no preconcieved notions for a direction or any restrictions.
The disc has 60 minutes of music ranging from straight ahead rock to latin tinged jazz.
We did not set out to make a certain type of record, we just set out to make ourselves happy making music.
Hopefully you will enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!
