Howe Gelb unveils "Severe Season" just in time for Christmas

"Severe Season" is off Howe Gelb's new Future Standards album out January 27th on Fire Records.
For those celebrated guys who hit on the standards – Monk, Cohen, Bacharach, even Merle Haggard, Howe Gelb is creating new tunes with cathartic one-liners and malleable melodies that suggest any singer could interpret these dozen American piano ballads and take his offbeat worldview and make it their own.

Future Standards by The Howe Gelb Piano Trio takes an outsider view of early gospel and rhythm and blues both part of the American musical socialization that he touched on with 2006’s ‘Sno Angel’. Now he’s on a jazz-tinged trip, bending the genre, taking it back to his shack, giving an innovative fine tune in the lean-to garage.

Future Standards is released in North America January 27th on Fire Records. There will also be a co-headline tour with Mark Eitzel in early 2017. Check out "Severe Season" followed by a list of upcoming tour dates below.
