When We Die, We All Come Back as Music

Guitar and harmonica king Jon Gindick has long been known as one of the most exciting harmonica players and teachers on the international scene.

His books on playing  blues harmonica have sold over a million copies.

His Mississippi Delta Blues Harmonica Jam Camps held several times a year in Clarksdale, Mississippi are world-famous.

His act as a single performer, playing harmonica & guitar and singing his songs has opened festivals, and earned standing ovations.

The music you are listening to is from Jon's  highly acclaimed new cd,  produced and accompanied by Ralph Carter.

Bulletin: "When We Die, We All Come Back As Music" was named "Best Blues Song of 2010" by Hollywood Music in Media Awards in 2010.

Jon Gindick's books, music and career are reviewed at www.damngoodtunes.com/The_News.html

"Song after song Jon Gindick laid one surprise after another on me. I have never heard anything like this music. It is so outright original and entertaining it’s hard to imagine why music like this hasn’t spread like wildfire across the planet! All the elements are there; great words, instrumentation and production – top notch. But that’s not even the kicker…it’s Jon Gindick’s soulful beautifully melodic choice of song structure – how the vocals dance through your head as a journey through an enchanted dreamscape of love, loss, pain, anger and joy like only a true legend would know how to deliver. Sometimes a crooner in the classic style, at times rough and raspy and others so subtle you can almost hear a secret you’re not supposed to know! I have not been this surprised by a record or an artist since we started this web magazine over five years ago. And this CD will become one of my most cherished – right up there with Layla and Let It Be. It’s that good!" -- Bruce J. Maier, Damn Good Tunes


From Sonny Boy to Sinatra...

    all craziness aside, thank you jon for all the youtube videos and the video harp club and the inspiration. sometimes in this harmonica world it can be quite lonely. as for me i am still holding the fort up here for us harmonica players along with a few others who are finding it difficult to get practice time in. as for me, currently i am starting to be vocal and practice-ing vocals, accent is really important singing blues, a sort of wolf man jack style. kinda jim morrison, sorta curt kobain, well whatever it is maybe i dont know what it is but i am getting better at it and my confidence is getting stronger. and your youtube videos is a wake up call saying to me that harmonica blues doesnt always have to be about suffer--suffer--suffering. it could be very fun so yes that is a join. to sing blues in a fun happy go lucky way. to say hello by way of the harmonica tro say i love you and have a bright day if it is possible or to say something meaningfull that would help someone get through the day toward the destination. i myself realize that . i also realize that harmonica learning there is really no end and to keep the playing simple and not forgetting that to make the rif patterens simple with phrasing and reppitition. meds working great for me nowadays. hope your sanity level is as full as your heart has always been. your harmonica friend and pal, harmonica " blues dance " lance

    Jon, You sound like butter on a warm roll, smooth. I was at the May 2012 jam camp and I had a great time!! The life of Jon Gindick is an interesting one, full of lots of cool facts. I want to come to the jam camp in May again. Hope to see you in person again in the spring. I'm just a simple carpenter in love with the blues. Art and Patty Anthony
