    I recently discovered Charlie Musselwhite.
    I'm not an expert on harmonica blues players, but this sounds good to me so thought I'd put it up for feedback. Here's an example but there is much more on youtube. Any opinions? Anyone know of similar harmonica music I should try out?

    Ooh, I like him.

    I've recently been overdosing a bit on Humph. He's not bad at all, either. More boogie, dixie and sometimes honky-tonk, but some blues, too. A very pleasant mix.

    I'm assuming that you mean Humphrey Lyttelton and the Harlem Ramblers?

    I just checked some of his stuff on youtube and he is definitely good! I'll have to locate more of his music. He seems to be versatile on several instruments!

    The very same. In England he's now more famous as the longtime host of I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue, but he was a decidedly accomplished jazz trumpeter and clarinettist, and one of the forces behind the revival of jazz in the UK. He has a style that makes you happy - well, makes me happy, in any case!
