Mouth Box

by James Conway

Traditional Irish Harmonica. In the jigs, hornpipes, and reels that he so masterfully plays, one can hear the sounds of Old Ireland, and at times hear the growl of the Mississippi Delta.

Album Notes
James Conway is an Irish-American musician based in Chicago. He has played traditional Irish music all his life, first starting on flutes and whistles and then taking the tunes over to diatonic and chromatic harmonica. To the traditional music of Ireland, Conway applies his techniques of bending, trilling, and chording that he learned in the west side blues joints from blues master harpists such as Junior Wells and Sugar Blue. In the jigs, hornpipes, and reels that he so masterfully plays, one can hear the sounds of Old Ireland, and at times hear the growl of the Mississippi Delta.



to write a review


I have to agree with Richard on this recording. I have heard his name for several years in Harmonica circles (HARP-L.COM) and now understand why the words amazing always found its way in. This is a captivating album full of solid choices in song and playing. The harmonica playing flows like waterin and out of the otehr instruments....... now where my Guiness

An utterly brilliant recording
James Conway's "Mouth Box" is brilliantly conceived, performed, and recorded. Anyone who likes Irish music at all, regardless of their opinion of the harmonica, is sure to enjoy these performances, and harmonica fans who love Irish music will simply be in heaven when they hear it.

Conway's harmonica is brilliant throughout, and the instrumentation on each cut is carefully varied to provide a wonderfully shifting palette of textures and sounds. The recording quality is simply fabulous--the sounds seem to shimmer in the air. Even the packaging and cover art are superb.

"Mouth Box" is not just a great harmonica record--it is one of the very best independent releases I have heard by any artist in any genre, fully on par with any major label release in every way. Buy it, and while you wait for it to arrive, clear a slot for it in your permanent rotation stack.

In my Top 10
This is a cd I play over and over and over again. It is brilliance. The selection of tunes is very balanced between fast and technical to slow and thoughtful. The slowed down version of Castle Kelly is pure magic. I could go on an on, but simply put, this is a top 10 release for me. You should own this release. Thanks James. Keep them coming! www.irishmusicottawa.ca

I became a fan of James after watching his videos on YouTube and I immediately purchased this CD. His harmonica playing throughout this album is just brilliant, and so is the instrumentation! James is a master of harmonica and Irish music, and I would recommend this CD to anyone who loves listening to Irish music.

Thanks James!
