ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Blues Harp meet the Latin Groove ! About Tetsuya Nakamura Harmonica Player Tetsuya (pronounced Tet-seeya) Nakamura was born and raised in Japan. As a youngster, his music teacher told him just to mouth the words to the songs when his school chorus performed. In junior high, he wasn (IU (Jt even allowed to touch the musical instruments, much less join the marching band. He satisfied his musical yearnings by first playing air guitar with a broom, followed by many nights learning rock guitar by listening to American records and picking out the tunes on his cheap acoustic guitar. By age of 15, he mastered the electric bass. Up until1982, Tetsuya played electric bass with his own rock and roll band throughout Tokyo. He then became interested in Fifties American music. About that time, he switched to upright bass because it has that 50s sound, and began gigging with a roots music rock band. In 1983 he started listening to an American blues show on the Far East Network of the U. S. Armed Forces Radio on his shortwave radio. This was when he was first introduced to the sounds of the harmonica, and his life changed forever. In 1984, he took a harmonica class from the number one blues harmonica player in Japan. His teacher, Ryuichiro Senoh, taught mostly the Chicago blues sound in the vein of Little Walter, James Cotton, Junior Wells, and Sonny Boy Williamson II. That same year, Tetsuya won a prize at the FIH Harmonica Contest in Japan, competing in the Blues Category. In 1986, Tetsuya played his first US performance at the Apollo Theater Amateur Night Championships with the Japanese Rhythm and Blues Band called the Driving Wheels. He continued to perform in Japan as a studio musician playing harmonica for recording artists, and movie soundtracks, and playing live gigs. Following the American Dream and looking for a band to join, Tetsuya made the big move to Los Angeles in 1992. For several months he played with various local Los Angeles bands at nightclub gigs, concert halls, state fairs, weddings, in other words, no gig was too small. Eventually he started sitting in on performances with major artists such as Lou Rawls, H. B. Barnum, and others. In 1993, he joined the legendary band War as its Harmonica player and immediately went on a world tour. Since then, he has continued to perform with War in concerts throughout the United States and the world. During this time, Tetsuya has had the opportunity to jam with such featured acts as Carlos Santana, Los Lobos, and Natalie Cole, as well as recording with Snoop Doggie Dog. In 1999, Tetsuya combined forces with blues guitarist/vocalist James Waldman. Together, they released an acoustic blues CD in 2002 entitled (IR (JDown by the Riverside. In 2002, Tetsuya Released Single-CD with two Latin Origanl Songs, entitled WalkinThrough The Alley and Sunny Days in East LA
