here’s some harmonica jazz. like (i suppose) many people, you say “harmonica” and i think of blue ‘harp’. silly me! but i do love the harmonica, be it blues or jazz… such a lovely warm sound.
anyway, recently back from madrid where i saw andrea motis (who was fantastic, and sang more / played trumpet less than i expected). then last weekend, down at the cork jazz fest, i saw sélène saint-aimé, in a show that still leaves me a bit speechless (& that’s a good thing in this case, in case you’re unsure). so jazz-wise, i’m in jolly mood, and hope you’re the same!
completely unrelated to any of that, i recommend a series that i’m listening to (some bits again, some for the first time), the imc’s blind date jazz series, which you can see through their site or on the series youtube playlist. check it out.
