ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I’ve been playing harmonica and guitar since 1964. I’ve also done a lot of harmonica teaching. I first taught harmonica at the original Ash Grove, which was the focal point of the 1960s folk revival. I also taught harmonica at McCabes Guitar Shop, Boulevard Music, and at various colleges and universities, all in southern California. I studied blues harmonica with the legendary Sonny Terry and chromatic harmonica with the classical virtuoso, Cham-Ber Huang. Sonny Terry primarily taught me how to produce complex rhythms while Cham-Ber Huang mainly taught me how to get a throat vibrato.

This CD, Harmonica & Guitar Duets, presents a wide range of music, including blues, bluegrass, ragtime, country, swing, Klezmer, and jazz. Unless otherwise noted, all the songs on the CD were recorded with a Hohner CX-12 chromatic harmonica and a vintage Gibson J-45 guitar. The recording was done with the Digidesign MBox and Pro Tools LE. I typically played a track of guitar, followed by a track of harmonica. This disk emphasizes the chromatic harmonica, partly because this is my main instrument, and partly because I feel this complex, beautiful sounding instrument isn’t heard enough these days.

Bach

This CD is for EVERYBODY, not just harmonica players.
I’ve heard David play, and he has “harmonica magic”. I sent David’s CD to an engineer friend who plays harp. “Super!” he said. His wife, a non-musician, liked it even more than her husband. Thirty-six harmonica songs on one CD has got to be a record. In sum, I can recommend this CD to everybody. —Just enjoyable listening.

Bill Klein

A new genre for me and it's great.
My tastes run to classical and jazz, so I was skeptical when a friend recommended this cd, but it's great. I find myself playing it over and over. Move aside Bach, Beethover, Brahms and Brubeck.

Charlotte M. Best

This CD will knock your socks off! It is fabulous!
I doubt if you can find a better collection or more diverse music played by such an accomplished harmonica and guitar player. Give yourself a treat and get this CD and hear this amazing artist, then tell all your friends and get some more to give as gifts.

Glenn Cook

A fanstastic CD.
This CD is really the greatest. It covers so many different
music styles; it's hard to believe any one person could play so many different style tunes and yet do them all so
tastefully. I never tire of listening to it.

Ed Myers


A great harp CD, of wonderful music. I have been able to play with David Naiditch once. He just seems to get better and better.

Bill Mcholm

Clean & tasty...This really gave me a lot to think about.....and practice.
The harmonica is amazing! the Guitar work beautiful and tasty! The recording was great......don't see how you got such clean over dubs!
The whole thing is really well worth being a commercial CD....all it needs is track names and some liner notes.
Even the Art work was extremely well done.

Pete Sardon

So many styles and so adroitly done.
So many styles and so adroitly done. A CD that is most generous in length and encompasses a whole myriad of tuneful songs. David Naiditch coaxes a new depth of sound with his chromatic harmonica. Best of all, the women enjoyed this recording as much as the men who previewed it with me. Let's hear more!

Linda Stock

Outstanding Range
I'm amazed by David Naiditch's range and ability to inhabit different genres from jazz to klezmer to bluegrass. This CD is an outstanding accomplishment.

Dave Fertig, Elmtree Blues Society

David Naiditch's musical breadth and depth is awesome: he's one bad mutha!
David Naiditch is the real thing, one bad mutha on the harmonica!

After his many years of study with some of the greatest living diatonic and chromatic players, along with decades of teaching experience, and tons of playing playing playing, David Naiditch brings much more than Sonny Terry's complex rhthyms and Cham Ber Huang's magical vibrato, he also brings melodious soul spread fluidly across the stylistic spectrum.

This is a rare artist and rare album. Every harmonica player, and every fan of the harp, should have this album in their collection, especially if they want to see how harp can transcend genres and always sound sweet.
