Ed spent fifteen years as Haynes' bassist. Clifford Jordan is a tenor saxophonist who many modern jazz fans will asscociate with the intense bass playing of bandleader and composer Charles Mingus.Howard,undoubtedly influenced by the latter master, as would be any jazz bassist, also cities Jordan himself as a major teacher.

Howard was also featured on Thomas' "Till We Have Faces" (JMT), affording the bassist  his first chance to record with guitar giant Pat Metheny. In 2001, Howard got the chance to perform with jazz legends Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter.
