Helge Tallqvist is one of the best exponents of chromatic harp today with a deep understanding of the subtle tones and innate swing of the masters. A decade ago, Tallqvist released one of the best harp records we've heard called PLAYS GEORGE HARMONICA SMITH......This new all instrumental release presents more wonderful covers of GEORGE SMITH songs as well as a trio of LEE ALLEN intrumentals that really rock. The sleeper of the set though is his take on ODE TO BILLIE JOE......the country soul classic first recorded by Bobbie Gentry. Guitarist Tomi Leino is featured thoughout the record and adds his solid & sparse sounds to the proceedings......Harp lovers.....take notice....this is a good one!!!
