PT Gazell  A great talk with PT Harmonica Master builder performer and some of his music.  PT Gazell A method behind his madness. Hot, swingin, smooth, original, clean, lyrical, diatonically chromatic, one of a kind, masterful, the most swinging, Oh yeah, like what? Nat King Cole, Benny Goodman, Louie Jordan, Ben Webster, Sweets Edison, Tiny Moore, Wes Montgomery...that's what!  Using his own signature model instrument, theGazell method diatonic manufactured by C. A. Seydel, PT proves that the harmonica is capable of much more than what most of us believe.No other player combines his phrasing, his melodic style, his song choices and his improvisational abilities…his singular style may draw comparisons to others, but in the end, it’s a style all his own.
