[Harp-L] Re: Sugar Ray and the Bluetones
If any of you want to hear great, soulful harp playing, pick up Sugar Ray's
Hands Across the Table CD. I guarantee you will consistently hear different
phrasing and runs than most of the top players you listen to. This was the most
harp he has played on a CD. Plus his singing is off the charts. I strongly
suggest it. Crazy, sweet playing that you don't hear from any west coast
player. Too bad he does not gig more often, as he always puts on a great show, and
is a humble, wonderful man. I have had the good fortune to sit in with him
doing Cloud Cover which is on my sound samples, that is basic compared to the
rest of the CD. And of course I will continue to plug Mitch Kashmar who has
the gig with War now, Wake up and Worry was recorded with a little old amp
like the real guys did it. One can't enough of his high register uniqueness.
These are just two of my favorite Traditional style blues guys, I am not mixing
them in with overblowers or anyone else. Last note. Does anyone know if
Shakin Smith is still playing and where. The one CD someone sent me of him was
great, he really TB's with that sharp, snappy tone.
