If I may be forgiven this self-promotion, you can hear full-length samples of my solo harmonica work at:

These pieces explore alternate tunings, wide intervals, and real-time counterpoint on the diatonic, and are recorded without overdubs.

At, you can hear streaming audio of some very electronic harmonica stuff.  I recommend "Pull of the Moon" and "In the Thick" in particular as examples of fresh harmonica sounds.  Most of the instrumental parts on these pieces are played on diatonic harmonica, though it's not easy to tell in many cases.
