Latest News! (Howard's Blog)
Today I went to the Post Office to send out some CD orders and they have raised the price of shipping internationally again!!! This does not sit with me very well as I believe that $14.25 to ship a CD to Canada is outrageous. I'm working on an alternative. Canadian buyers please email me before ordering. The other countries don't appear to have gone up very much. I guess its another Canada/USA thing.
In the meantime I've tuned up my setup and am ready to tour as soon as possible. It blows my mind to use the new plug ins available for computer and digital audio workstations that emulate the old keyboards. I have a collection that back in the day, with physical keyboards would take a good size road crew and truck to move around. In today's world I can bring all of those classic keyboards with me in the form of digital plugins. Although I think I might always have room for my single manual Hammond B-3 and Leslie speaker.
Here's to getting back out there rockin' soon!!!!!!
Aldenfield is a progressive rock band that I put together with three fine musical friends who are some of the finest players in Tampa, FL. (Jim Morris, Mark Prator and Ruben Drake). This is a project I am particularly proud of. Samples available on the Aldenfield page.
On the ZON front......Rock Candy, a respected label in the UK, has re-released Zon's first album, "Astral Projector". With new mastering and 4 bonus tracks!!! One of which has never been released. You can hear a snippet of it on the bottom of my website here. "The Battle". Here is the link for purchasing: https://www.rockcandyrecords.com/Zon.
Don't forget Zon Live! is available on this website
Another CD I have available is The Quietest Moments. This is a collection of piano based pieces some of which have kind of a world music flavor. It's good music for relaxing, meditating or just chillin' round the house.
I wrote the opening track on the new Pinnacle Point album on Escape Music. You can order it at http://www.jeromemazza.com. I played keys on several tracks too. You'll note guest appearances from Jim Morris and Mark Prator from Aldenfield.
