2005 album from Muddy Waters' harmonica player, with Levon Helm guesting on drums on track 11, "So Lonesome."

Paul Oscher/ Down in the Delta release date July 12th, 2005. This is certainly a record for fans of elemental blues. Harmonica virtuoso Paul Oscher is a veteran of the Muddy Waters Blues band, and the album is reminiscent of Water's formative Mississippi blues. Oscher cut these tracks without any overdubs or other electronic cleverness, opting instead to rely on sharp musicianship and feel. His uncomplicated approach yields a deep satisfying blues experience. Oscher takes on some classic blues tunes, including W.C. Handy's "St. Louis Blues,"Robert Johnson's "32-20 Blues" and Robert Lockwood Jr.'s "Take a Little Walk," He offers four originals, one of which is the top-notch slow burner "So Lonesome." Also note his very cool solo-guitar cover of "What a friend we have in Jesus."
