Not Your Usual Harmonica!!
peter krampert | | 11/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lee Oskar began playing the harmonica while growing in Denmark. after moving to the US in the late 1960's he became a member of the band WAR, making plenty of musical history with the group on abouta dozen albums. Oskar left the group in the the late 1970's to explore his own musical directions, recording solo albums and creating his own line of ground-breaking harmonicas.On this, his first solo album, Lee Oskar, already one of the great harmonica innovators, shows us that whatever molds he had already broken were simply the beginning. In War, Oskar played harmonica that was like no other, combining Latin, Rock, Jazz and coming up with his very own style. On this recording Oskar plays music that defies categorization. It's European, Folk, Jazz, Easy Listen with an edge. It is utterly original and thoroughly entertaining.You simply have not heard harmonica until you have heard this CD and I definitely urge you to go out and get yourself a copy as quick as you can."
A sound that reflects the 70's beat focus

"There are only a handful of world reknown harmonica men and I am pleased that Lee can be added to this small band of virtuosos. A very under performed instrument, The likes of Stevie Wonder and Toots Thielemans leave little room for others in this field. Lee stands out for being an artist that was able to utilise a different beat and scale to the harmonica that is symbolic of the black music of the day. This beat was the artistic blend of jazz, brazilian and funk styles that had a uniqueness of its own. A "Curtis Mayfield" in his own right. Unfortunately this style did not manifest itself over a prolonged period and Lee's repetoire was unable to build on its initial success. Still an exceptional period of creativity. All the best Lee wherever you are todayDenis D'Cotta

Lee Oskar - Non-verbal Story Teller

"My experience (like that of many other music lovers) has been that on any given album there will be one to three really good songs, with the rest being filler. Not so on this album - every song is a winner!!! I stumbled across this gem about 20 or so years ago, and was astounded to hear how a story could be told in music without lyrics. I had never thought that the harmonica could be used in such a powerful, direct-to-the-emotions way until I heard Lee Oskar on this album. This album is a keeper!"
