About Fred Ho

One of the more adventurous composers working in Modern Big Band music, Ho (aka Houn) boldly incorporates Asian and African ideas and instruments into jazz settings. If you can imagine an even more multicultural Charles Mingus, you're in the ballpark. While his compositions -- and their titles -- tend to take on aggressively programmatic themes ("Uproar In Heaven: Heaven Tries To Co-Opt Monkey"), the music does just fine on its own terms.
