HIP, new records
RE: HIP No. 4, new records
Gee, shucks, thanks, guys for sayin' all them nice things. Kinda
makes a feller blush.
Just did an interview with Peter "Madcat" Ruth for HIP No. 5, and
will also be talking to Cham-ber Huang. No. 5 will have a LOT of

remember his mother inquiring for him on the list a few months
back about U.S. harmonica instruction methods. I haven't the
faintest idea why, 'cause this kind can PLAY!!!.
He sent me two things, a CD of acoustic blues with a band
comsisting of various members of his family ("Never Been Plugged"
- lost a little in the translation, I think). This I haven't
listened to yet, but he also sent a cassette, which I put on in
the car the other day. WHOA!
It's called "Freeandise" (a bilingual pun on the French word
"friandise,") and is a fusion band playing Frank Zappa, Miles Davis,
and several originals. Daniel is right in there, playing a fully
chromatic diatonic with a fluent and sassy command of the
