For more than 20 years, renowned violinist and composer Christian Howes has been powerfully moving audiences all over the world as an artist with a distinctly American voice, forging ground at the intersections of jazz, classical and world music. On this album, first released in 2010, Howes meets master blues guitarist Robben Ford at the crossroads. The two headliners are backed by a superb band featuring former Ray Charles organist and pianist Bobby Floyd, Grammy-nominated bassist Kevin Axt, Spyro Gyra drummer Joel Rosenblatt and jazz vocalist Sharon Hendrix.

“A joyous spirit pervades the music … the sum of the parts is most pleasing but, nevertheless, Howes emerges as an outstanding talent, playing at dizzying heights which place him alongside Smith, Venuti, Stephane Grappelli and the great blues fiddlers like Don ‘Sugarcane’ Harris and Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown, as one of the very finest violinists of this, or any other, era.”
