Lovers of the blues have known for decades that jim conway is australia's finest blues harmonica player. His individual projects as well as his long term roles with both the backsliders and big wheel have established jim's credentials as a masterful improviser who always knows when a few, tastefully chosen notes will imbue a performance with subtlety and depth or when a solo of great fire and passion is required. Recorded live by abc radio national for their "music deli" programme, this album showcases the diversity of both musical styles and the sheer quality of the performances. From the wonderfully understated accompaniment to jeff lang on the beautiful 'batemans bay' and 'motherless child' to jim's red-hot solo on 'catfish blues'. These are models of the art of the harmonica player. This album will become a serious collector's item for blues enthusiasts.
