Artist Biography by

Based out of Chicago, trumpeter Paul Howard is the fellow that blasts the highest notes in the horn section on many recordings by great blues artists such as Lonnie Brooks, Otis Clay, Albert Collins, and Tyrone Davis. Not to be confused with the earlier jazz tenor saxophonist of the same name, this Paul Howard is part of a generation of hornmen whose involvement with black music casually bypassed genre barriers. He put in appearances on studio sessions by soul artists including the Dells and Curtis Mayfield, and was part of the obscure, early funk outfit in Chicago called Captain Sky.
