I love it. David Naiditch plays brilliantly, and this is a foray into musical territory that few chromatic players have made, and none have done it better.
Light, fast, delightfully nuanced playing: I love it. Gypsy Jazz is a huge challenge for all musicians, and David takes charge of matters in an outstanding demonstration of chromatic harmonica playing. Did I mention that I love it?

Except for the music of Django Reinhardt, I was unfamiliar with Gypsy Jazz until I heard this recording. Supposedly presented as a jam session, it is a lively collection of various styles, and most enjoyable. It's the harmonica which adds a unique sound uncommon to the jazz in my listening experience, and David Naiditch is a master. I really like it.

I've been a fan of Gonzalo Bergara since I first saw him playing in John Jorgenson's band at DjangoFest Northwest on Whidbey Island, WA. Since the first Gonzalo Bergara Quartet album he's been one of my favorite Gypsy Jazz guitarists. He has a knack for finding very talented accompanists to record with I'm new to David Naiditch and I thought he and Gonzalo sounded great together. His chromatic harmonica sounded so much like an accordian at times that I'm surprised I hadn't heard this instrument in a Gypsy Jazz setting before. I look forward to hearing more like this from David Naiditch and I would enjoy seeing him at DFNW, "djamming" with the other Gypsy Jazz performers.

Are you familiar with the instrument known as the chromatic harmonica? I was first introduced to chromatic harmonica as a young teenager in 1960s when I picked up a Music Minus One LP called "Blues and All That Jazz" featuring world famous harmonica virtuoso Cham-Ber Huang from Shanghai and New York. While many learn harmonica by ear, Mr. Huang's material was bona-fide instruction that taught such techniques as closed and open tone colors, wah-wah effect, tremolo effect, breath control vibrato, and blue tone slurs. The course provided studies in folk blues, swing blues, progressive jazz blues, harmony progressions and exercises. Mr. Huang also wrote a complete two-volume method, "The Art of Playing Chromatic Harmonica," and he developed an instrument called the "Chordomonica" which allowed melody and harmony to be played simultaneously. He worked on developing a concert harmonica with broader dynamic range, greater volume and resonance and a wider variety of tone colors.

As a teen, Los Angeles harmonicat David Naiditch first got involved with the instrument through the playing of legendary bluesman Sonny Terry. Naiditch also has those Cham-Ber Huang LPs, along with one of him playing with a virtuoso accordion player and one of him playing with an orchestra. By the 1960s, Naiditch was teaching and performing throughout southern California. He's clearly a guy who's stuck with it, studied harmonica for decades, and developed his skill to a high degree of mastery. Naiditch now plays Seydel Saxony or Hohner CX-12 jazz models. I first met Naiditch in a bluegrass festival jam session and thought, "Who is this guy who's able to hit all the notes and nuances in intricate fiddle tunes?" Turns out Naiditch is well-known in the L.A.
