"I've always preferred the sound of a HOHNER. The overblows, overdraws work better on it. They just do."
Howard Levy is an acknowledged master of the diatonic harmonica, a superb pianist, innovative composer, recording artist, bandleader, teacher, producer, and Chicago area resident. In 1970 at the age of 19, he started playing the diatonic harmonica as a fully chromatic instrument, which opened new possibilities for an instrument that had been limited to playing Folk and Blues. Equally at home in Jazz, Classical, Rock, Folk, Latin, and World Music, the two- time Grammy Award Winner is a favorite with audiences worldwide as well as a recording artist sought after by the likes of Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Paquito D’Rivera, Styx, Donald Fagen, Paul Simon, etc.
