Harmonica World (England)
Feb/March 2008

Clint is a harmonica player and teacher from Minnesota, USA. He began playing the diatonic over thirty years ago, and he played in a series of bands from blues to the more jug band inspired Sugar Kings. He started playing chromatic early in his career and it led to him studying with Robert Bofiglio and his enrollment in a University Jazz Course in NY.

This CD show him in his preferred acoustic setting with excellent contributions from piano and bass. It is a trio album where all the instruments get some space -- it is not a harmonica album, although it is built around Clint. The music wins and for me that is a nice trip through my old Blue Note LPs, which is where much of the music was drawn from: Dexter Gordon, Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, Clifford Brown, J J Johnson, plus Toots. Just what you need when you want an hour or so of relaxed bluesy jazz harmonica from one of the best players around.
