George Howard (September 15, 1956 – March 20, 1998) was an American smooth jazz saxophonist.
In the late 1970s, he toured with Grover Washington, Jr., who was one of his idols. In the early 1980s, Howard released his first and second studio albums, Asphalt Gardens and Steppin' Out. Both albums were well received and ranked high on the Billboard magazine jazz album charts at No. 25 and 9, respectively.
By 1985, his third album, Dancing in the Sun, had scaled the Billboard Jazz Album chart to No. 1. Each of his next three albums, Love Will Follow, A Nice Place to Be, and Reflections would also reach this height in the Jazz Album chart.
Howard returned to recording with Midnight Mood, which was released in January 1998, his final album before his death two months later. He stayed with GRP until his death from lymphoma on March 20, 1998. His final album, There's a Riot Goin' On was released by Blue Note Records one month after his death.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
