Tony Atherton, alto sax; Bill Barrett, chromatic harmonica; Joseph Berardi, percussion; Steuart Liebig, contrabassguitars

Think you’ve heard everything? Try some wacked out jazz on chromatic harmonica. Bill Barrett coaxes all sorts of slides and runs out of this usually somewhat technically-limited instrument. In fact, I’m wrong, there’s nothing technically-limited about harmonicas at all if he can pull this off!
