Yeah... Horton's main claim to fame (amongst harp
players) was his big, fat tone. His phrasing
enhanced his big tone, IMO, and was very soulful.

But I also love the fact that he recorded things
other than blues on occasion. I learned a lot from
studying his take on "Don't Get Around Much
Anymore" and "La Cucaracha".

Stay well!
