Video of the Day 13 May 2016: Jerome Peyrelevade
Jerome Peyrelevade is one of the astonishing diatonic players who seem to be sprouting like weeds in France right now. This video highlights excerpts from his latest record, which features Jeyrome blowing with power and precision on some very cool modern jazz. Every piece on the record is played on a C diatonic harp, which is close to astonishing when you hear what he’s put the instrument to on this disc. The virtuosity is obvious but not intimidating, and there’s a strong sense of joy throughout. You can get the record here, and if you’re into either jazz or harmonica, it’s a good bet.
