I've always kinda wanted to see Huey Lewis and Toots Thielemans get down on 
stage together. Huey's one of the most talented guys I've seen on diatonic in 
terms of using scale and arpeggio work to make his harp solos sound like they're 
actual compositions. And I think coupling that with Toots' mad skills on 
chromatic could render something purely genius. Maybe if they tried something 
off the wall and, say for instance, Gershwin's Rhapsody in 
Anyways, just to get my point across about Huey's technique, here's a solo he 
did in Germany in '84. (Germans love him)

I thought it might be interesting to hear the members of this fine list chime in 
on their dream harmonica performances--who you'd like to see paired together on 
stage, who you'd like to be paired together with on stage, what songs you'd like 
to see performed by a certain artist, etc. Since we're dreaming, I see no reason 
why death, time, or distance should limit your answer (e.g., no reason, why I 
can't dream of seeing Sonny Terry and Madcat performing together, or Stevie Ray 
Vaughan and Jason Ricci trading licks).

Personally, I always hear songs that I think would sound great on the harmonica. 
I would love to hear a group like Svang or the Adler Trio play the background 
music from the Star Wars Cantina Band ( 
or maybe hear Stevie Wonder and Toots playing "The Waters of March" (maybe with 
Bill Evans on piano; I really 
would've loved to see Chris Michalek go on tour with some big headliner (like 
Sting or Prince or... ?).

How 'bout you?
