Lazy Lester Johnson

Lazy Lester developed a unique style of blues harmonica playing that has influenced the beginner as well as the professional performer. His early recordings of his own songs led to his long relationship with the Hohner Company. Over the years he developed as a guitarist and played both instruments. During his interview he spoke of his great appreciation for the blues and his respect for those players who came before him. “The greatest way to repay those who came before us and who shared our sound, is to make sure they are not forgotten.”
