"The Ultimate Harp Jam"

It's been many months since I last featured this historic harmonica improvisation -- maybe the best ever recorded, and featuring harp legends L.D. Miller (at right in the above still from the video) and Brendan Powers (at left), Christelle Berthon, and a 15 year old named Jay Gaunt. Miller beatboxed at the same time he was playing the harmonica.  

The jam was completely spontaneous; it came together at 3 AM after the 2009 SPAH convention in Sacramento California had wound up for the night. 

Big thanks to Noam Cohen for uploading the video to YouTube.
