Blues harp players “Junior Wells” one of the greats!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

“Junior Wells”

Junior Wells was born in Memphis Tennessee as (Amos Wells Blakemore Jr.) in 1934′ and died in 1998′ he was known for his Chicago style amplified blues harp and vocals that he had developed. Junior wells was known for a couple of very popular songs like (Hoodoo Man Blues) that was one of them but the most famous song was and still is today (Messin with the Kid.)

Junior Wells performed and recorded with a lot of famous blues artist such as Buddy Guy which I show a picture with him below and other great blues harp players like Muddy Waters, Earl Hooker and even the Rock band the Rolling Stones.

Junior Wells learned to play the harmonica by the age of seven from his cousin “Junior Parker” and the famous Sonny Boy Williamson 11 as pictured here. He moved with his mother to Chicago in 1948′ and starting sitting in with local musicians to perfect his harmonica playing but he first performed with a band called “Aces” influenced by “Little Walter” he developed one of the first amplified style harmonica sound that so many harmonica players use today.

Junior Wells made his first recordings in 1952′ where he replaced Little Walter in the Muddy Waters Band. Wells told the following story, printed on the cover of Hoodoo Man Blues: “I went to this pawnshop downtown and the man had a harmonica priced at $2.00. I wanted that harmonica so bad but couldn’t afford it so I got a job on a soda truck played hooky from school  worked all week and on Saturday the man gave me a dollar and a half. A dollar and a half! For a whole week of work. I went to the pawnshop and the man said the price was two dollars. I told him I had to have that harp. He walked away from the counter and left the harp there. So I laid the dollar and a half on the counter and picked up the harp.

Later when my trial came up, the judge asked me why I did it. I told him I wanted that harp. The judge asked me to play it and when I did he gave the man the 50 cents and hollered “Case dismissed!” (1948)

Junior Wells played all different kinds of harmonicas like the Hohner Blues harp and Chromatic  and others but one of his favorite harmonicas was the Lee Oskar harmonicas.

 

Junior Wells was buried with a tray of Lee Oskar harmonicas
If the information on Wikipedia is reliable, the Hoodoo Man was buried in Chicago in 1998 with a tray of Lee Oskar harmonicas by his side.  Lee Oskar confirms that they were good friends and Junior used his harps. He also recalls hearing a story like this at the time, but he can’t remember any details. Then an email was received from Junior’s Family that stated this……

This is to verify that Jr Wells was buried with Lee Oskar harmonicas. I know this to be a fact because I was there at the funeral. Mr. Oskar also played the most beautiful song (solo). I have never heard a harp played that way before. I would like to thank him for being his friend and honoring us with his presence. The reason I know all of this is because Jr. was my dad. I miss him everyday but his fans and friends help keep him alive for our family. May God bless and keep all of you. Thanks Jr’s Family

“Carey Bell” One of the best harmonica players!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

“Carey Bell”

Carey bell was born in Macon, Mississippi as “Carey Bell Harrington” in 1936′ he died in 2007′ of heart failure he was one of the best harmonica players of all times and played a Hohner Super 64 chromatic harmonica.  When Carey Bell was growing up as a child he was very interested in the saxophone because of what he heard from a great saxophone player at that time named “Louis Jordan.” Carey Bell really wanted a saxophone but his families income wasn’t enough at the time to buy him a saxophone so they settled on a “Mississippi Saxophone” better known as the harmonica. It wasn’t long before Carey Bell was listing to the great blues harmonica players like Big Walter Horton, DeFord Baily, Sonny Boy Williamson 11 and Little Walter just to name a few. Carey Bell was already an accomplished harmonica player by the age of 8 he went on to join a blues band with his Godfather who played piano and Carey Bell played bass guitar and harmonica at the age of 13.

In 1956′ Carey Bells Godfather “Lovie Lee” asked him to go to Chicago with him. After being in Chicago for a short period of time he went to go see “Little Walter” perform and was blown away by his harmonica playing he stuck around after the concert just hoping that he might be able to even meet Little Walter which he did meet Little Walter and Walter gave him some playing tips on how to play the harmonica this really excited Carey Bell made him more determined to perfect his playing style to sound like the greats.

Carey Bells main harmonica instructor was “Big Walter Horton” having learned from some of the great blues harp players he pursued playing harmonica while in Chicago but not much of an opportunity for harmonica players at the time so he played the bass guitar and the harmonica in several bands on the West Side of Chicago with the likes of Eddie Taylor and Royal Johnson in 1960’s.

In 1969′ he toured Europe with the American Folk Blues Festivals and had an opportunity to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Carey Bell went on to play with Muddy Waters inn 1970.’ He went on to played with the (Chicago Blues All Stars) led by Willie Dixon.

In the 1980’s Carey Bell continued to record for different labels. In !990′ Bell teamed up with Junior Wells, James Cotton and Billy Branch to record the album “Harp Attack” which I used to practice to first starting to learn to play the harmonica on cassette tapes. Now because of high tech you can pull “Harp Attack” up on YouTube one of the best harmonica recordings of some of the Greatest Blues harmonica Players of all time.

Here’s a video of “Harp Attack”

“James Cotton blues harmonica player”

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

“James Cotton”

Here’s another great blues harmonica player that you probably have heard of before.

“James Cotton” as most harmonica players knew him, was born James Henry Cotton. Born July 1st,  1935, died March 16, 2017 at the age of 81. James Cotton was originally a drummer but is famous for his blues harmonica playing.  James Cotton first started playing with a lot of great blues artists. In 1950 early in his career, he went on to professionally play the blues harp for the “Howlin Wolfs Band”. In 1955 he was asked to play harmonica for the “Muddy Waters Band”. James Cotton became the bandleader of the Muddy Waters Band and stayed with them until 1965. His career continued as he then formed the “Jimmy Cotton Blues Quartet”.  Between gigs with his quartet, he produced recordings for the Muddy Waters Band.  After the “Jimmy Cotton Blues Quartet” he formed a touring group named “Electric Flag”. James Cotton (called Cotton by his friends)  was the youngest of eight brothers and sisters who grew up in the cotton fields working beside their mother, Hattie, and their father, Mose. On Sundays Mose was the preacher in the area’s Baptist church. Cotton’s earliest memories include his mother playing chicken and train sounds on her harmonica and for a few years he thought those were the only two sounds the little instrument made. His Christmas present one year was a harmonica, it cost 15 cents, and it wasn’t long before he mastered the chicken and the train. King Biscuit Time, a 15-minute radio show, began broadcasting live on KFFA, a station just across the Mississippi River in Helena, Arkansas. The star of the show was the harmonica legend, Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller). The young Cotton pressed his little ear to the old radio speaker. He recognized the harmonica sound AND discovered something – the harp did more! Realizing this, a profound change came over him, and since that moment, Cotton and his harp have been inseparable – the love affair had begun. Soon he was able to play Sonny Boy’s theme song from the radio show and, as he grew so did his repertoire of Sonny Boy’s other songs. Mississippi summers are ghastly, the heat is unrelenting. He was too young to actually work in the cotton fields, so little Cotton would bring water to those who did. When it was time for him to take a break from his job, he would sit in the shadow of the plantation foreman’s horse and play his harp. His music became a source of joy for his first audience. James Cotton’s star began to shine brightly at a very early age.

By his ninth year both of his parents had passed away and Cotton was taken to Sonny Boy Williamson by his uncle. When they met, the young fellow wasted no time – he began playing Sonny Boy’s theme song on his treasured harp. Cotton remembers that first meeting well and says, “I walked up and played it for him. And I played it note for note. And he looked at that. He had to pay attention.” The two harp players were like father and son from then on.

There were dozens of juke joints in the South at the time and Sonny Boy played in nearly every one in Mississippi and Arkansas. Now he had an opening act! Because Cotton was too young to go inside he would “open” for Sonny Boy on the steps of these juke joints, sometimes making more money in tips outside than Sonny Boy did at the gig inside.

After a gig early one morning Sonny Boy split for Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to live with his estranged wife, leaving his band to Cotton who comments, “He just gave it to me. But I couldn’t hold it together ’cause I was too young and crazy in those days an’ everybody in the band was grown men, so much older than me.”

There was no one to care for the teenager – no real home to go to – but young Cotton had his harmonica. Beale Street in Memphis was alive with the blues and Cotton played on the street for tips. Also, he put a mean shine on any paying customer’s shoes. When he’d been with Sonny Boy, they had played a juke joint named “The Top Hat” in Black Fish, Arkansas. One night he heard Howlin’ Wolf was playing there and he decided it was time to meet him. He was still underage but the owner let him through the door this time. He liked the young musician plus he knew if Cotton sat in with Howlin’ Wolf the good times would roll even farther, deep into the night. Cotton got along well with Howlin’ Wolf from the moment they met and they began to play the juke joints as far north as Caruthersville, Missouri, and as far south as Nachez, Mississippi, with Cotton doing most of the driving down old Highway 61. He learned the ways of the road from a second blues legend.

At the ripe old age of 15 he cut four songs at Sun Records: “Straighten Up Baby,” “Hold Me In Your Arms,” “Oh, Baby,” and “Cotton Crop Blues.”

KWEM, a radio station in West Memphis, Arkansas, directly across the Mississippi River from Memphis, gave Cotton a 15-minute radio show in 1952. This was a great achievement for a bluesman who was only 17 years old. It gave him a wider audience; not everyone went to juke houses, but the radio was on everyday from 3-3:15 p.m. Mississippi and Arkansas held the very essence of the blues in their cotton fields. People wanted to hear their own music.

Cotton had gigs every weekend but to help support himself better he found a job in West Memphis driving an ice truck during the week. When he got off work one Friday afternoon in early December 1954, he walked to his regular Friday happy hour gig at the “Dinette Lounge” and played his first set. The club was getting crowded and he recognized many familiar faces but when the band took a break, a strange man approached and extended a handshake to Cotton saying, “Hello, I’m Muddy Waters.” He’d heard about the young James Cotton. “I didn’t know what Muddy looked like but I knew it was his voice ’cause I’d listened to his records,” says Cotton. Muddy needed a harp player. Junior Wells had abruptly left the band. He asked Cotton to play the Memphis gig with him. The answer is history. Cotton remained Muddy’s harp player for 12 years.

Chess Records kept Little Walter (Jacobs) playing harmonica on Muddy’s records until 1958. Before then Muddy asked Brother Cotton to “play it like Little Walter” – note for note live on stage every night. But that wasn’t Cotton’s aim in life and finally one day he said to Muddy, “Hey man, I never will be Little Walter. You’ve just got to give me a chance to be myself.” Cotton’s star shined even brighter in 1958 when he began recording at Chess Records with Muddy on “Sugar Sweet” and “Close To You.”

Cotton developed an arresting stage presence which Muddy recognized. As a sideman, Cotton always respected Muddy’s position of authority. But they both knew Cotton had his own full-blown brand of animated showmanship that no one had ever seen before and that, coupled with his own harmonica style, commanded attention from the audience. In 1961 at the Newport Jazz Festival one of the highlights of his career came when his wild harmonica exploded on stage during his solo of the song he arranged for Muddy, “Got My Mojo Working.” You be the judge! Fortunately, the tape was running and the recording belongs to all of us.

“Muddy was a very sweet guy. I loved and respected Muddy very much. But I did all I could there, an’ it was time to move on to something else,” Cotton explains why he left the band in the latter part of 1966.

The year 1967 is well-documented as Cotton’s first year as a bandleader with the two CD’s “Seems Like Yesterday” and “Late Night Blues” recorded live in Montreal at the “New Penelope” club and unreleased until 1998 on the Justin Time label. It was the first gig on the first tour of the first James Cotton Blues Band. From that night forward Cotton embarked on tours all across the country. He had crossed over into the blues-rock genre because of his reputation as Muddy Waters’ harp player. During the last half of the 60’s decade Cotton made four records. “Cut You Loose” was released on Vanguard, “Pure Cotton,” “Cotton In Your Ears,” and “The James Cotton Blues Band” were released on the Verve label.

Play Harmonica like the Greats!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

I’m going to be talking about how to play harmonica like the greats like the title says. To play harmonica like a great harmonica player it takes time, patience and proper instructions to become a great harmonica player.

Every great harmonica player had to start from the beginning just like someone starting out to learn to play the harmonica for the first time. I wrote an earlier post on that subject that you can check out here>Learn Harmonica!

A lot of the earlier great harmonica players from the past didn’t have access to all the great harmonica teaching like they have now because of technology and the internet. Most of the harmonica players back then just learned from trial and error and imitating sounds that they heard on the radio.

Little Walter probably learned to play the harmonica by listening to vinyl records and imitating the other instruments that he heard on the record. Little Walter played a Hohner Marine Band Original 1896 Classic because that is what was available back then in the 1800’s.

Here’s an example of the harmonica he played back then click on the image for pricing! 

Today you can learn to play like the great harmonica players of the past and present by online instructions from professional harmonica instructor’s that can teach you the proper way to learn the harmonica,

You can also go online a bring up videos of great harmonica players and watch and play along with them. But of course to do this you would at least need to know the basics of playing the harmonica which I gave you in a link above in a highlighted text “learn harmonica”.

Here’s a video of Little Walter that you can watch and play to if you have the skills to.

 

This is one of Little Walter’s most famous songs “Juke”

Have you ever hear a great harmonica player?

Have you ever heard of Little Walter?

Have you ever played a Hohner Marine Band Original 1896?

What kind of harmonica do you play?

Harmonica Bending! WOW!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

I’m going to be talking about harmonica bending which always seems to be a subject that beginning harmonica players are scared of. Bending notes on a harmonica gives you that bluesy sound out of the harmonica that you hear a lot in blues and rock music.

There are some other kinds of music that use the technique of bending also such as Country Blues, and Jazz which Stevie Wonder who was famous for bending the chromatic harmonica. Normally the diatonic harmonica is the one most used in bending but the chromatic harmonica can be bent also like I talked about earlier with Stevie Wonder I wrote an earlier post about him that you can check out here>More famous Harmonica Players

“Bending”

The technique of bending changes the pressure of the airflow which allows the harmonica player to bend the pitch of the higher tuned reed down towards the pitch of the lower tuned reed.

  • Diatonic Harmonica – holes 1-6 can be bent down by drawing in on the harmonica and holes 7-10 can be bent by blowing on the harmonica.
  • Chromatic Harmonica- holes 1-7 can be bent on draw & blow notes both. Holes 8-11 can only be bent on draw notes.  Hole 12 can only be bent  on blow notes.
  • Draw Bends: Lower your jaw while raising the back of your tongue keeping  the air flow at the back of the tongue.
  • Blow Bends: Lower your jaw while raising the front of the tongue slightly keeping the airflow slightly behind the teeth.  

The hole that can be  bent the most is hole 3 on a C harmonica you can draw bend the hole from an Ab down to a G# an in between those notes.

Here’s a video on harmonica bending so you can see and hear an example of bending.

 

 

Have you ever heard of bending on the harmonica?

Have you ever heard a harmonica player do bending on the harmonica?
