Bob Holz and A Vision Forward: Bob Holz and A Vision Forward is a new jazz/fusion band featuring drummer/composer Bob Holz, bassist Ralphe Armstrong and guitarist Chet Catallo. Holz’s new album titled "Visions and Friends" features Larry Coryell, Randy Brecker, Ralphe Armstrong, Alex Machacek and Billy Steinway. The record release is scheduled for February 10th, 2017 on MVD Audio.

Drummer /composer Bob Holz is a former member of the Larry Coryell Trio. Holz began his career in Boston attending Berklee College of Music and went on to study with Billy Cobham. Holz has shared the stage with numerous noted artists such as Larry Coryell, Robben Ford, Les McCann, David Fat Head Newman, Cornell Dupree, Maria Muldaur and Dr. John among others. Holz’s prior release on MVD Audio titled "A Vision Forward" features Larry Coryell, Mike Stern, Randy Brecker, Billy Steinway, Ada Rovatti and Steve Weingart. Bob’s musical approach to drumming and composition provide the perfect foundation for the musical explorations of A Vision Forward.

Ralphe Armstrong came from a very musical family and by 16 years old, Armstrong completed his classical and jazz studies at Michigan’s Interlochen Arts Academy in 1974. Over the next few years Ralphe went on to tour and record with an incredible list of illustrious names including John McLaughlin, Frank Zappa, Herbie Hancock, Jean-Luc Ponty and Santana among others. Ralphe’s sophomore cd project released in 2015 titled "Detroit Rising", is a record that encompasses jazz, rock, fusion and the blues all rolled into one great record.
 
Chet Catallo is best known for his tenure with the group Spyro Gyra. In 1978 Catallo joined Spyro Gyra during the recording of "Morning Dance " which features Catallo's composition “It Doesn't Matter”. During the years Catallo was with 
Spyro Gyra, the band earned six Grammy nominations. Chet is a featured guitar clinician for Gibson guitars, performing over the years at NAMM shows with legends such as Larry Carlton, Les Paul, Chet Atkins, B.B. King, Louis Bellson and many more. Catallo also conducts his own guitar clinics throughout the United States and Japan on behalf of Gibson Guitars.
