One of today's most original harmonica player, David Herzhaft was born in 1974 and raised between blues and country-music. His father Gerard Herzhaft is a highly regarded specialist on these music (a dozen of books published and translated around the world). As a kid David’s “heroes” were Fenton Robinson, Joe Maphis, and Byther Smith. As a teenager David met Johnny Shines, Eddie Campbell, and Charlie Musselwhite.
Very early though he was attracted by jazz and due to his work on the overblow technique he developed his own style with time, bands, encounterings (Howard Levy, Joe Porcaro).
David Herzhaft's harp playing is excellent. Very tasteful and exciting. He's got great technique and it's a pleasure to hear his ideas so well stated on the harmonica. --Charlie Musselwhite
