[Harp-L] Gypsy Jazz Chromatic Harmonica
Thanks for telling me about this album--Portrait of Jimmy Rosenberg.
I've only heard Finn Hauge on the CD, "Hot Club De Norvege: Swinging
with Vertavao, Angelo & Jimmy." Out of the 23 tracks, Finn only
plays harmonica on 3 (Jimmy the Kid, Blue Strings, The Flying
Dutchmn), and none of these tunes capture the typical "gypsy
fire." (Although I love his playing.) From my search on Amazon, it
seems that 2 of these tunes are also on Portrait of Jimmy Rosenberg.
Please let me know which other tunes Finn plays harmonica on.

My next CD will probably be gypsy jazz, another genre where
harmonica is rarely used (but where accordions are established).
Looking forward to hearing it!!!!
One of those rare cases is Finn Hauge, who I've heard play on a
Jimmy Rosenberg album ("Portrait of Jimmy Rosenberg") -- he does a
great job, making the chrom sound quite natural in the gypsy swing
