Recorded January of 2022 at studio 43 in SF.The band New Monsters recorded three albums, the first one featuring the music of Dan Plonsey. The second album recorded live at studio 55 in San Rafael, and the third album “Point Cloud.”  For this album Steve reached back into his substantial back catalog of twenty-nine albums from different periods in his career and brought them to the band to recompose, rearrange and reimagine. The theme of this recording is transformation, where old becomes new again.


The album “Mr. E,” recorded at the same time, was made in homage to the amazing percussionist drummer madman and visionary Michael Evans who passed away tragically last year. The album features Michael’s voice from a phone machine message and several interviews mixed together into one twenty-two-minute composition. The track features Steve Horowitz on bass Jim Bovy on drums Scott Looney on piano and Michael Evans spoken word. All the profits from the sale of this album will go to the Michael Evans memorial fund at Roulette in NYC.


Next Release is an album of Steve’s chamber music for the Red Desert Ensemble, entitled “Side Scroller.”
