Bob Howell was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He left the city in 1965 to study at the Berklee School of Music in Boston and from there began to perform nationally and internationally, interrupted for two years by being drafted into the army and eventually and luckily being stationed in a post band. He returned to live in Philadelphia permanently and continues to perform locally, nationally, and internationally.
Bob’s extensive performing background and recording experience in jazz and R&B enhance his work with music students, especially for those interested in a career in music.
He has had opportunities to meet and play with people that were around Philly like Jaco Pastorius, Joey DeFrancesco, and Byron Landham, to name a few. He is on many recordings and has worked to more extent, with many other great musicians which include Trudy Pitts, Lou Rawls, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey Bands, Joe Sudler’s Swing Machine with special guests: Ronnie Cuber, Stanley Turrentine, Frank Foster, Jon Faddis, Donald Byrd, JJ Johnson and Slide Hampton, and others.
Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.
