Fusion at its best. Insane phrasing, nice feeling, and cool tone, did I just describe Greg?

Hes nsync's former guitar player tongue.gif.

Here are some jams to some backing tracks that are worth checking out.

Hey I've been wanting to get into some jazz fusion lately. I don't want to blow out a ton of money on a bunch of albums so I think I am just going to buy 1 album from big artists like Greg Howe, Al Di Meola, Allan Holdsworth, etc. Which album would you say defines Greg Howe's style the most?

A quote from our good ol' trusty wikipedia.org:

"Apart from his solo career, Howe has established himself as a highly sought after session musician, having been hired by mainstream acts such as Michael Jackson, Enrique Iglesias, *NSYNC and Justin Timberlake to perform with them on tour."
