Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite - Words and Music - 2013

by Eric Holland

Take the elastic rhythms of Charlie Musselwhite's harmonica and top it off with Ben Harper's killer guitar licks and vocals, and it conjures up something of an old juke joint: sometimes wretched, sometimes treacherous, but always a gas. Their new album is Get Up!, and from a great hang I had with the guys at Avatar Studios, you can hear that magic live.
