Happy Harmonica - Boris Draper

Love Walked In
Happy Harmonica
By Boris Draper with Orchestra
Cornet Records CX 98

From the back cover: The genius and virtuosity of Larry Adler is probably the greatest overall factor in the popularization of Harmonica music. Second to this, was probably Mr. Honer's ability to manufacture Harmonicas for 10¢, thus supplying the need of America's youth to give vent to its musical expression with an instrument that was cheap and highly portable. Now an accepted solo instrument, the Harmonica is capable of creating a whole series of musical moods, and this recordings has been expressly designed for this purpose, with the music ranging from "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" in ballad mood, to the gay latin beat of "La Cucaracha."
