Sonny Terry is an amazing harmonica player and vocalist who performs gritty yet smooth blues, with convincing storytelling and true musical talent.
And because I could not put it into better words myself, below is an excerpt from the ‘All Music Guide To The Blues‘.
“Whooping and wailing like a man possessed, Sonny Terry drew listeners into a sultry musical world populated with hot headed women and worried men. Though he often employed an ethereal falsetto voice, he was also capable of unleashing hair-raising hollers. His harmonica style was similarly compelling. The North Carolina-born legend would vocalize through his harp, thus intensifying the plaintive moan of the instrument.”
