ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BONFIGLIO
Heralded by the Boston Globe as the "Master of the Harmonica (whose) playing is something you have to hear to believe," ROBERT BONFIGLIO performs what Robert calls "sophisticated acoustic music" played with a talented group of artists. His first Pop recording, "Through the Raindrops," lauded for its blending of forms and captivating sound, spent eight months on the Billboard charts. BONFIGLIO has toured the United States several times with a "THE BONFIGLIO GROUP" and has just finished this "HARMONICA AMERICA" recording.

BONFIGLIO has appeared on “CBS Sunday Morning,” “CBS Morning Show,” “Live with Regis and Kathy Lee,” “Larry King,” and Garrison Keillor’s “American Radio Show.” He has had feature stories and reviews in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.

In the Pop field, ROBERT BONFIGLIO, has worked with such artists as Chakka Khan, John Sebastian, Bernard Purdie, Bernadette Peters, Roberto Carlos, Marvin Hamlisch, producer Arif Mardin and Mandy Patinkin.



BONFIGLIO performs with an enseble of harmonica, guitar, violin and is joined by percussion, standup bass with some vocals. Drawn from the idioms of folk, jazz, country, blues, popular and classical music and set in the context of an acoustic group, the show features a wide range of music in an American style.

BONFIGLIO and THE BONFIGLIO GROUP have several pop recordings (produced by Tommy West who produced Jim Croce and Anne Murray) which represent a new kind of music. As Robert says, "Born of a creative collaboration between Tommy West and me, it joins my experience as a classical harmonica virtuoso with his work as a highly successful producer of contemporary music."

A virtuoso of the very first rank, Robert Bonfiglio has taken the harmonica to a new level of performance. His concerts in the U.S., Europe, South America and the Far East have received the type of critical praise reserved for the very few. Bonfiglio's pioneering work is reflected in the spirit of "THE BONFIGLIO GROUP" where the story of a land and its people is celebrated through its own instrument, the harmonica.

Fabulous...with a caveat!!!
I bought this after hearing excerpts during a radio interview with the artist. Until then, I had never bought any harmonica CDs. The good news: Harmonica America is fabulous! You've never heard what can be done with a harmonica until you've heard this. One caveat, though: This CD nearly killed me!! You see, in my younger years I often danced around the house to music. I haven't done that for at least a dozen years, that is...until I heard the third selection on this CD: Juke!!! It's impossible to listen to this and resist dancing!!! All I can say is had the next selection not been slow and mellow, I might not be alive to offer this review!!

So glad I bought it
Never thought I would like harmonica music.But this is not the usual "civil war" or cowboy "campfires" I have heard before. This is artistic.

Very well done

Harmonica America, es una de las músicas mas hermosas
y maravillosas, que he escuchado. Los efectos en la
armónica y la armonia de su acompañamiento es
encantador y muy admirable. Muchas Felicidades !.
La revista aún no tuve el agrado y el honor de conocerla.
