A harmonica master who came of age in the 1970s interviews an up-and-coming master. The interview begins with Bart playing a little bit of Mozart on the diatonic harmonica with a killer vibrato. The duet on “Now’s the Time” that starts around 4 minutes in is brilliant! Notice also that Howard picks up a different harmonica to play this piece, giving the lie to the notion that his well-known ability to play chromatically on the diatonic harp means that he only uses one diatonic harp, ever.
