William Clarke Blowin' my Harp 1998

Blowin' my Harp  1998
Bremen  Sept 28/1988

William Clarke was chiefly associated with the Chicago blues style of amplified harmonica, but also incorporated elements of jump blues, swing, and soul jazz into his playing. Clarke was a master of both cross and chromatic harmonica styles and many consider him among the blues harmonica greats.  Sound quality here is basically perfect!
