 As Featured On EzineArticles

    Howard Roberts was born on October 2, 1929 in Phoenix, Arizona and taught himself to play the guitar at the age of 7. By the time he was 12 years old he was studying with Horace Hatchett who influenced Roberts to listen and appreciate the complete spectrum of music for the guitar from the classics to jazz. He then studied guitar technique for a while with concert classical guitarist Howard Heitmeyer and later studied the Schillinger system with Fabian Andre. During World War II Howard played guitar professionally in and around the Phoenix vicinity getting valuable experience on the bandstand.

    In 1950 Howard Roberts relocated to Los Angeles. Right after he arrived he went to hear jazz guitar legend Barney Kessel playing with Dave Brubeck at The Hague jazz club in Los Angeles. At some point during the show Kessel introduced him to guitarist Jack Marshall who was likewise in the audience. With Marshall's help Roberts quickly went on to establish himself as one of the leading studio guitarists in Los Angeles. Over the next twenty years Howard was showcased on literally hundreds of recordings as well as many TV and film soundtracks.

 Howard Roberts Plays "When Lights Are Low"

    In the early 1970s he became really interested in teaching and began to appear at numerous guitar seminars all over the United States. In partnership with other guitar players, which included Jimmy Stewart, Howard Roberts composed and released numerous outstanding jazz guitar books covering chord melody soloing, single note improvisation, and sight reading. Unfortunately, many of these original instruction books have now gone permanently out of print.

    With the assistance and guidance of Howard Roberts the Guitar Institute Of Technology (G.I.T.) ended up being of the world's most distinguished instructional facilities for studying guitar. Roberts also became involved in guitar design and construction. The Epiphone Guitar Company produced their very first Howard Roberts Model in the late 1970s. In the early 1980s the Gibson Guitar Company, having actually purchased the Epiphone Guitar Company, released a brand-new version of the initial model as part of the Gibson guitar line.

 Howard Roberts Plays "Star Eyes"

    Howard Roberts always preserved an interest in jazz and was very active in helping to establish in 1966 the "jazz guitar night" at Donte's club in Los Angeles. Throughout the years Roberts was featured with numerous jazz artists consisting of Shorty Rogers, Buddy De Franco, Pete Jolly, Bud Shank, Bill Holman, Bob Cooper, Al Haig, Chico Hamilton, Gerry Mulligan, Oliver Nelson, Bobby Troup, and Dave Grusin. In 1965 he won Downbeat magazine's "New Star" award. He also composed an excellent month-to-month column for a number of years for Guitar Player magazine.

    Several of his later recordings reveal him as a jazz-rock fusion style guitarist, however his earlier recordings showcased him as one of the finest all round jazz guitar players following in the mainstream tradition established by jazz guitar legend Charlie Christian. In the last several years prior to his death from prostate cancer in 1992, Howard Roberts started to perform at concert venues all over the world playing and teaching jazz guitar. He has left guitar players the world over an important legacy of jazz guitar instruction books and recordings.
