What an honor it was to have been invited into this wonderful family project. Nexus looked to be the beginning of a beautiful new collaboration between father and son. The music was fresh sounding — and very beautiful, judging from the handful of early, premastered tracks Virgil shared with us. Even the cover painting was to be a family affair — it was done by young Zuni Howe, Virgil’s daughter.
We were devastated to learn of Virgil’s passing. Though we’d only just started to get to know him, he was clearly a talented, gentle soul.
Our thoughts and support continue to go out to the entire Howe family.
Nexus will be released in the U.S. on November 17, 2017 by Inside/Out Music.
