Haven't heard Howe's solo work.

I like The Nice and some of ELP. Not happy with Emerson's propensity to 
lift stuff from other artists and not give them credit for it. He gives 
credit for some of his classical-based work, but not for one of the 
extended synthesizer solos on Welcome Back My Friend. Or maybe I'm the 
only person in the world who has Dick Hyman's LP Moog, with "The 
Minotaur" on it ...
