Subject: Major works for Classical Harmonica

Many people still scoff at the thought of the harmonica playing 'classical'
music with orchestra.

However... a number of people have had serious works written for them.

I have compiled a list of the ones I know about, have got, played or have
had written for me.

I would be interested to learn of any other works from anyone .... Robert
Bonfiglio ????

Here is the list of about 60 works I have gathered. I KNOW there are more.

Mine are all near the end.... I'm so much younger than anyone else :)

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 JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
