Format: Audio CD
From the Los Angeles area, David Naiditch once half joked, "Harmonica players are about as welcome at bluegrass festivals as the mosquitoes that come out to feast." That may be often true, especially when the harmonica player is not well versed in the nuances of the bluegrass music and the jamming etiquette associated with the genre. However, in the hands of a chromatic harmonica master like Naiditch, the instrument should be heard much more with the standard bluegrass instruments. When properly played, a fully chromatic instrument (capable of playing in all keys) produces a bouncy lilt that can handle even the most intricate melody. Perhaps that's why, nearly a century ago, Judge George D. Hay invited DeFord Bailey to play tunes like "John Henry" and "Fox Chase" for about 15 years on the Grand Ole Opry. And today, Canadian Mike Stevens has also made a name for himself using the harmonica in a bluegrass context, but he doesn't use chromatic instruments like David Naiditch's Seydel Saxony or Hohner CX-12 jazz models.

David Naiditch is well known in the Los Angeles music scene, and he's equally comfortable with blues, country, swing, and gypsy jazz as he is with bluegrass. Legendary bluesman Sonny Terry got him started during his teen years. By the 1960s, Naiditch was teaching and performing throughout southern California. Fast forward to the mid-1990s, and we find David focusing on the chromatic harmonica, playing in all keys, and improvising many styles of music. In 2005, he produced an eclectic album with 36 tunes called "Harmonica and Guitar Duets.

Go buy this CD. When you hear the articulation, the phrasing, the energy of this ensemble led by David Naiditch, you hear bluegrass music that is both groundbreaking and of the finest quality.
Excellent musicians playing good arrangements, and super chromatic harmonica work by the leader.

David Naiditch is an incredible harmonica player. Uses chromatic harmonica and produces astonishing sounds. Truly have never heard a harmonica player like this before. The arrangements and other players, including Pat Cloud on banjo, are first-rate. So glad I have this one.
