I've finally completed the new cd and am real happy with it. I played more harp than the last few cd's and there are a few great twists there. I'm still waiting for the new Rod Piazza signature harps from Hering. I don't know what's taking so long but I'll be sure and let all you harp players know as soon as I receive them. I also am enjoying the new Little Walter 5 CD box set with all the out-takes. "That boy could blow some harp" as George Smith used to tell me.
trying at this time to conjure up material for the upcoming cd. When I
say "conjure" I mean just that. Because it (the material) comes from all
kinds of sources. Old records, a phrase or a quote Honey tells me, or a
lick or musical line that I fall on while playing the harp. Other than
that, I'm trying to keep the group working in a proud fashion and not
sink to the depths of our times.
