[Harp-L] Re: Blackie Schackner RIP

Blackie Shackner was a kind and generous person, not to mention a fun and funny guy, and a monster harmonica player, especially on chromatic.  He was a thorough master of the instrument.  He dared to record Bach when few did, and his interpretations had a clear and very musical point of view.  I never heard Blackie play a note that didn't work.

I'm sorry Blackie's gone.  I'm glad he shared so much beautiful music with us.
