Totally agree about David Naiditch. One of my best memories of a SPAH was  
Sacramento '09 --Cara Cooke and David BlueGrassing away very, VERY late at 
night  in an empty room--and I hear some very familiar diatonic harp so poke 
my head  in--to see Jason Ricci sandwiched between the two of them as he was 
improv/ing  the riffs to play along....all of them laughing...
David nodding, applauding and grinning from ear to ear then taking HIS  
turn--wow. SO good.
The three of them were having such a blast even while Cara (a phenomenal  
player on several instruments in her own right)was nearly asleep on her feet 
but  simply unable to turn in or away from this great 2a.m. jam. 
David is also the nicest, most unassuming and gentlemanly human being you'd 
 ever want to meet. He just moseys along making no waves at all and 
disappearing  if you blink twice.
If he'll be at SPAH make a point of looking for him and listening in when  
he's playing in these little mini-jams. You won't be disappointed. 
I didn't capture any of it on film--wish now I'd been able to because it  
was a lovely moment.

This is true. David Naiditch is on  my very short list of the most 
underrated players around. That list is something  like this: 
Most Underrated players:
1) Joseph Leone
2) David  Naiditch.

My shortest list, however, is a list of people who have made  reeds out of 
bullet casings. 

People who have made harmonica reeds out of  bullets:
1) Joe Leone.
2)  Nobody.
