David Naiditch – Bluegrass that Swings – Bluegrass, Jazz…

I have recently discovered a CD titled Bluegrass that Swings by David Naiditch on the Airplay Direct Website. David Naiditch is a harmonica player who plays Bluegrass music, Western Swing, Jazz, Klezmer, Ragtime and more.

The harmonica is not the typical Bluegrass instrument, it was the first time that I found Bluegrass recordings with a harmonica. But it fits well to a typical Bluegrass band with guitar, banjo, fiddle and mandolin.

David has compile a Bluegrass playlist with more than 43 videos, including many examples from his CDs.

But I remember that Bill Monroe used to have an accordion in some of his early recordings like in this recording of Blue Grass Special at the end of the video:

Sierra Hull is the mandolin player in the following video of Old Dangerfield:

Drawing on influences such as Jelly Roll Morton, Bob Wills, Louis Armstrong, and the black string bands from the South (Mississippi Sheiks, Charlie McCoy), the Zapf Dingbats deliver a unique arrangements of traditional jazz, blues, and folk tunes.

These are the members of Zapf Dingbats:
