Great news, everyone.
I recieved a letter from PT Gazell. He is the famous nashville styled
harmonica player from the 1980's. He is finally releasing his famous LP
"Pace Yourself" on CD.
For those of you not familiar with PT, he released a groundbreaking LP
in the '80s which blended country, bluegrass, blues, jazz and folk
music into a seamless blend of harmonica and musical artistry. Though
some might consider him to be a disciple of charlie mccoy, PT has his
own voice recognizable by his sense of melody, sonic clarity and
He also had the advantage of performing as a full time member of the
Johnny Paycheck band which gave him access to a professional
environment which honed his craft.
PT was instrumental in my harmonica playing during the release of Pace
Yourself. I studied his solos and learned a lot about how to fit a
harmonica into a musical pastiche besides just taking a solo. I owe him
a debt of gratitude.
I absolutely consider his seminal work of "Pace Yourself" to be a must
have for any diatonic harmonica player.
On his website, www.PTGazell.com, there is a link to purchase the cd.
Here is his letter,
peace and pace yourself,
First of all, let me apologize for sending out a mass mailing, but I
thought this was the best method to reach all my friends.
After many years of being away from the music industry I have
rediscovered the pure joy of playing harmonica. To this end I have been
playing out with various groups and individuals as well as rehearsing
for some gigs of my own which will begin in Jan. 2004. In addition I
have re-released, P.T. Gazell "Pace Yourself, " for the first time on
CD. While some of you had no idea I even was a musician, others of you
often encouraged me to start playing again...THANKS.
I also want to let you know that I now have a web site up and running
and I would appreciate it if you would take the time to check it out
and send me some feedback. You'll find it at www.PTGazell.com . It will
give those of you who have never heard the record, a chance to listen
to some of it. It also has information about upcoming gigs...
Feel free to make suggestions about the web site and suggest links. I
can be contacted atPT@xxxxxxxxxxxx
Thanks again and I hope to hear from you,
