SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA JAZZ SAX LEGEND RICHARD HOWELL, JOINS SOUTH FLORIDA-BASED ADAM “TEACHA” BARNES ON NEW SINGLE “THING GOIN’ ON!”

Adam Teacha Barnes & Richard Howell

South Florida reggae artist, Adam Teacha Barnes, with the help of producer/bassist Tuviel Levi, reached out to invite noted San Francisco Bay area jazz saxophonist Richard Howell to join him on his latest release, “Thing Goin’ On”. Producers Levi and Dennis Dreadstone wanted a hybrid, international vibe for the track, and the addition of Howell’s sax stylings seemed a natural to achieve their goal.

Howell’s powerful, sensually melodic saxophone playing has been heard with artists as diverse and definitive as blues/jazz/soul legends Etta James, Chaka Khan, Maurice White, Narada Michael Walden, Della Reese, Cecil Taylor, Don Cherry, Bernard Purdie, Buddy Guy, Regina Carter, Jimmy Smith, and Bill Summer, but this may be his first collaboration on a straight up reggae project.

The tune is released on Friday, July 24th, the RockSteady Recording label, and is available on CD Baby music site, and can be heard on Adam Teacha Barnes’ Reverbnation site.
