I assume the producer you mention was the fellow I referred to in my post. I hate seeing kids being manipulated like that by parents or guardians, but it seems to be a a frequent occurence in showbiz and those who aspire to it ...

He made a CD under the name Harry Caine, but it was mostly a showcase for the producer/keyboardist/composer in charge of the project and showed little of what made Uwe special. He and Don Les had a genuine and incredible mind-meld going on onstage at the 1994 SPAH convention. If some of that magic had been captured and recorded, he'd be a true legend in the harmonica community.

His name is Uwe Penzold (that's pronounced Oovay), son of my former student Andreas Penzold. His parents broke up shortly after the SPAH visit mentioned here and the last time I saw him, Uwe was being hyped as a child harmonica star in an exceptionally tasteless manner by his mother's new flame, using the stage name "Harri Cane". Poor kid. As far as I know, nothing came of it. Dunno what he does now, his talent was genuine and I hope he finds the opportunity to pick up where he left off.
