Music (reissued in 2001 on Maranatha!'s Sanctuary series under the title Reflection)Commentary: This solo album is one of the most delightful solo piano albums I have ever heard, and it has provided a great deal of enjoyment and inspiration to me over the years. To my knowledge, it is no longer in distribution, but it should be. I have yet to meet anyone else who knows Tom Howard's music, but they should.
