Mickey Raphael on harmonicas


Thanks to Phil Weisman for sharing this picture of Mickey that he found. Mickey is hard to photograph, because when there is enough light on him, he is working and has that harmonica in his mouth (covering up his handsome face). I have pretty much given up trying and just enjoy his solos. He is so talented.

Mickey’s album is available, if you don’t have one yet:
