Taking a grading break, listening to Best of Little Walter album, Walter Jacobs, my favorite blues harmonica player hands down, the clean school of playing, phrasing and tone over showing off, brilliant simplicity, does on harp what Billie Holiday does with voice. Extraordinary. Terrible ending to his life and art but at his best, on the top of the mountain.
