How about some Jason Ricci?

Jason Ricci is one of the more colorful characters I’ve come across in my search for great harmonica players and one of the most talented, as well.  A harmonica mechanic who customizes harps by hand, Ricci has some wicked technical skills, both on the workbench and on the mic.  I love the raw edge he has to his sound and, in particular, find his phrasing to be some of the best I’ve heard.  Check out this video of him playing a blues festival in Holland and keep an ear out for 2:56 for some beautiful intervals.
