Harmonica CDs: Beginner Recommendations

Buy mini-harmonica Various Artists (compiled by J.J. Milteau)- "Inspiration: 22 Harmonica Performances"- This CD is an absolutely perfect and pleasurable way for one to get acquainted with the various types of music and playing styles that the harmonica is so capable of. "It is a fine, budgeted anthology of the varying heroes of the harmonica. Unlike most such anthologies, the Blues and country music are not all that's here. Most of the big names familiar to hardcore harmonicists, such as pioneers Lou Adler, Borrah Manckevitch, and Deford Bailey are here as well as more recent stalwarts as Little Walter Jacobs, James Cotton, Toots Thielemans, and Stevie Wonder (here performing "Alfie' from the "Eivets Rednow" album). All major harmonica styles are covered here, and it's a good introduction to the musical diversity and possibilities of this once-neglected instrument. Harmonicists will treasure this, and it will be an enjoyable listen to the casual fan."
