unfortunately, i don't know much about harp players still living/playing
in the Chicago area, which is what i think you were asking about. but since
the subject of "Chicago-style" players has come up, let me mention one name
i think NEVER gets enough recognition: Paul Oscher.
he lives in Cali, but sometimes you can catch him around the country. the
man is a harp monster as well as a good guitarist, pianist, bass harp
player, and maybe more, i don't know. not to pigeon-hole him as a
Chicago-style guy, but he can certainly resurrect Little Walter in your ears
and more. anyone who loves harp should have one of his CDs, or better yet,
should hear him play live.
and p.s. -- congrats to Ryan (who's a wicked harp blower himself!) and his
wife on the new addition...
