Why Howard Levy?

Howard Levy (born in New York on July 31, 1951) is a master harmonica player who can play any and all styles. Probably best known as cofounder of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, you’ve heard Levy on Garrison Keillor’s “Prairie Home Companion.” He has appeared on over 250 albums. He is considered the first harmonica player to really play jazz on a diatonic harmonica, and he composed the second concerto ever written for the diatonic harmonica. Howard also has an extensive series of online tutorials. You can also catch Howard this year at the Hawaiian Harmonica Retreat with JP Allen.

    How can Howard Levy is behind Jason Ricci, Popper and McCoy? That can’t be right.

    If I had to pick my #1 favorite harmonica player of all time …. which is kind of a ridiculous exercise in comparing super novas to super novas…. Howard is my pick. I’ve felt this way for over 15 years so it’s going to take quite a blazing talent… from this old dog’s humble perspective…. to outshine what Howard has contributed the world of harmonica music.

    This is the man who made us all miserable. He was such an innovator that we all got demoted when he showed up.
