Bob Corritore is one of the most active and highly regarded blues harmonica players on the scene today. His style passionately carries forward the old school of playing that Corritore learned as a young man directly from many of original pioneers of Chicago Blues. His sympathetic, yet fiery harmonica playing is featured on many Blues Award-winning efforts and an artist of note on over 50 releases to date. He is one of the finest and most sought after harmonica players in the world today.
