Richard Hunter, Harmonica

(audio samples coming soon)

Richard Hunter's groundbreaking music is credited with re-establishing the harmonica as a modern solo instrument with its own virtuosic repertoire. Richard is the author of Jazz Harp (Oak Publications, NYC, 1980), a method for intermediate to advanced level players that is internationally regarded as the best book ever written on the art of playing the harmonica.

Richard landed his first recording session in the summer of 1970 with Sir Henry and His Butlers, the leading Danish rock band. From 1974 to 1980 he worked with a variety of jazz and rock bands, and formed his avant-garde duo with Chris Turner. It was during this period also that he wrote Jazz Harp, whose original working title was Harmonica for Musicians. The book has since sold over 20,000 copies worldwide, has been translated into several foreign languages, including Japanese, and has earned Hunter an international reputation.

From 1980 to 1991, Richard worked as a session player in Boston, where he played on hundreds of sessions for major and small label record releases, commercial jingles, and television and film soundtracks, including John Sayles's film City of Hope. Richard now lives with his wife in Connecticut, where he continues to push the limits of music for his instrument.
