    IMHO Greg Howe busted out of the " shredder " box . He is a funky ass mofo with a signature style . Not too many " fusion " guys approach that true funka- fied get down with the authority of Greg Howe . The elastic nature of his phrasing makes his playing unique .His vamps and grooves are nothing less than impressive and highly creative . As my friend Ed says Greg Howe is one of the best " crunchy fusion " guys out there . When he combines the funk and the " Rawk " the result is killer . Add the mindblowing technique to the mix and the result is :eek: :eek: :eek:

    With you on all of this. I'm also a huge fan of what sounds to me like a Strat-ish tone. I mean, it's woodsy and sounds only moderately gainy, yet he has all the sustain a predominately legato player could want.

    I think Greg's Jazz-Funk-Shreddy-Rock Fusion is a fascinating mix, and he pulls it off with often exciting results. Great player, and my "discovering" his post-debut album and Howe II albums has really been an inspiring find for me.

    I haven't previewed a single album by him from Introspection on that I didn't like.
