This is Hummel's first live album. He moved to the Bay Area 30 years ago, and today he must be regarded one of the most prolific and successful players on the west coast. This set of blues is a treat, especially for harp players and harmonica fans. Hummel blows like their will be no tomorrow. On '100 Years' he holds a note for 22 seconds! Crazy. Although not the most gifted singer on this planet, Mark has grown as a vocalist over the years as well. And Chris Wheal is the perfect accompanist on guitar. Recommended. MARK HUMMEL - voc/hca, CHARLES WHEAL - gtr, STEVE WOLF - bass, MARTY DODSON - drums. Special guest: MEL BROWN - kbds.
