ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bay Area blues singer, harp player, and songwriter Big Harp George burst onto the national blues scene in 2014 with a debut album entitled Chromaticism that was nominated both for a Blues Music Award and Blues Blast Magazine award for “Best New Artist Album.”

Named one of fifteen rising harmonica stars by Living Blues Magazine that same year, George may be the first and only recorded blues player to make the big chromatic harmonica his featured instrument, instead of the smaller diatonic harmonic favored by most blues players. The results are a fresh and sophisticated sound, with influences from jazz and swing.

George is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the most compelling songwriters in blues today. His songs engage contemporary life in all its complexities with keen insight and humor. His 2018 release, Uptown Cool, is a masterpiece of twelve original tunes ranging in topic from online dating to the human costs of disruptive technologies. No one is spared George’s irreverent wit – neither the powerful, nor aging blues fans, nor himself – but all in the spirit of rollicking good fun.

George never fails to surround himself with top talent, who thrive in the space he ensures them as bandleader. His big band, replete with horns, churns out particularly infectious grooves, topped by stunning harmonica work and laced with brilliant playing from the likes of Kid Andersen and Little Charlie Baty, current and former guitar slingers for the Nightcats.

Big Harp George is not only redefining the role of chromatic harmonica in blues. He is also commenting perceptively – and often hilariously – on life in the twenty-first century. In doing so he is blazing a path toward restoring the blues to rightful prominence in American popular music.
