Usually I play jazz on the chromatic, but this was played on the little ten-hole harmonica. I used the BOSSAFRED Realstyle.

Hi Tunemonger,

Man, you are getting some chromatic notes out of those 10 holes for sure, TuneMonger. Sweet sounds!! When it was done Barrelhouse came on next. Love it all!!

P.S. Thanks for the look-up of October Horse on rsdean's song.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Very sweet!!! Harmonica may be a bit loud and dry, but the playing sounds fantastic to me!!! I'm blown away by the great musicians on the forum.......only thing I can play well is BIAB smile. Very enjoyable!! Take care. Greg (a fellow Bossa fan)

TuneMonger,
love Bossa! Cool track and super harmonica playing. Excellent melody. Mixed very well and listens easy. Thank you for sharing.


P.S. Side opinion. I believe... your introduction of harmonica is not very common in Bossa genre. Unusual and fresh. But it sounds a bit sweet, nearly clarinet. I think it would be more interesting if it had a more raspy / raw harmonica sound.

Misha.

Hey TM ...

It's not everyday you hear harmonica on a Bossa. What a pleasant surprise and treat! Bossa and Latin jazz are two of mine and Diana's favorite genres to listen to and play.

Great tone on the harmonica. I think a little compression would even out the velocity a bit. BIAB harmonicas can be hard to tame sometimes. Kind of like their flutes. But it was a really, really nice listen! Best to you ...

TuneMonger,

A refreshing breeze, the scent of the night.
Bossa nova jazz is here.
For a moment, I remembered Toots Thielemans.
I feel that blue notes are being played even though it is not a chromatic harmonica.
I wonder how you are playing.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Thanks to all who commented, I'm very grateful when people do.

Shegeki, to answer your question, the harp I used had a custom tuning. That's how I hit the notes in the solo. Thanks for asking.
