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

    Playing the harp like a drum is greatest advice. playing a melody on a drum is way cool. singing like a drum- drum-druming w/ tripilets, half notes, arppegios, humming and a tah tah tahingness. W/ exhales, and mostly inhales, practicing to get vocal, hearing the harp speak a song hearing the song in the mind as it is hummed and drummed and...actually humming alot, voice is very very portable. Discovering that acccent country, blues, rock, folk intonation, like an actor learning, second nature to sound like person portrayed on stage, the whole world is a stage, becoming the voice, the blues the ... To actually nod and smile at first when everyone is nodding and smiling at you, because you yourself knows that you'll get to where you'll need to be because the end result is that they eventually will be smiling with sincerety when they will be enjoying your music. Very alot, sincerly, sir lance, aka, blues dance
