Small Moments of Glory tells the insightful and illuminating tale of Jack Howard’s lifelong musical journey - from his early classical music years through to the heady days of leading the horns section in iconic Australian rock bank band, Hunters & Collectors. He toured world-wide with Midnight Oil in 2017 on their Great Circle tour and his blog from that time formed the basis for this book.

Jack Howard is the only trumpeter to be inducted into the ARIA Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame. He writes with passion and eloquence about his successful solo career and his work with acts such as: Rodriguez, The Break, The Violent Femmes, The Living End, You Am I and many more. He has been described as “one of the great quiet achievers of Australian music”.

Authentic, self-deprecating and darkly humorous, Small Moments of Glory will take you inside the mind and the music of one of Australia’s most distinctive voices.
