Subject: Borrah Minnevitch

By luck and the good graces of a drummer friend of mine I find myself in
possesion of an album of Borrah Minnevitch and his Harmonica Rascals.
It's a 10" LP on Capitol Records catalogur H490. It sold new for $3.98
in Sears. I have no idea of its release date. The songs are as follows:
Perfida, Warsaw Concerto, Caravan, Antra's Dance, Fantasie-Impromptu,
Malaguena, Jamaican Rumba, and Song of India. What strikes me as being
different about this than other harmonica band recordings I have is how
absolutely stunning the arrangements are. They lean towards jazz. The
bass and chord playing is simply superb. Anyone have an idea of the
release date and which incarnation of the Rascals this is? Any info
appreciated. I almost forgot the cover has Borrah Minnevitch smoking a
cigarette and an on end 64.

On another note, Steve Miller was through town last night and silly me I
didn't go. Oops. Norton Buffalo is playing with him on this tour. Just
thought I'd mention it so that if he comes to your town you know it's not
just Steve Miller. fjm

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
