Greetings younguns... ?My song “Going Somewhere” is in this spot for MIssissippi tourism. It features Jeff Raines (guitar) and Robert Mercurio (bass) of Galactic, Denny Burkes (drums), and Chalmers Davis (keys). I’m on harmonica (and vocals in the full song).

Are you a fan of Sugar Blue, Scojo? It sure sounds like it! And that's a compliment.

Thanks much Tom. I definitely admire Sugar Blue’s playing but I can’t say I know his music that well. Probably I am influenced more by Howard Levy and John Popper, as well as many other harp players and musicians (many of whom are active on this forum, including Adam). But I’ll definitely take that as a compliment!

Tom: Oh, man... that's hard to say. I do a lot of different things on different songs, from a standpoint of technique, effects, style, purpose etc. I'm also my own worst judge. I would say that I'm pretty happy with what I did here, even though it's probably not the best playing from a technical standpoint:





...and this, which is probably my favorite of my own songs from a "song" standpoint:





...and then maybe this:





But I don't really know. I'm coming at harmonica from a different place than a lot of people on this board, probably, so my criteria may be a little different. I'm always trying to serve the song and my own music is not mainly blues. This is probably the closest thing to it from my last record:





Thank you for asking!
