I have no doubt of Bob Corritore as the most restless blues artist in the recent history of the genre, the best contemporary harmonica player and, with "From The Vaults" series produced by Vizztone Label, a musician with a background as substantial as it's inalienable for the knowledge and diffusion for the new generations of fans of a good handful of old bluesmen who are not among those chosen for glory. Honeyboy Edwards was an essential bluesman, T-Model Ford began recording at the age of 70, but Big Jack Johnson, Bilbo Walker, Tomcat Courtney and Al Garret were among those bluesmen whose indisputable art did not have the projection that they should have enjoyed. Bob Corritore recorded with all of them and a selection of those sessions can be found in this fifth volume of his archives. It's an invaluable concession to all blues fans around the world that little could we imagine existed, and the team formed by Bob and Vizztone should have the success and recognition that they undoubtedly deserve.

this has been real hamonica blues
