Found Sounds: 'Jews Harp' by Tapani Varis

May 18, 2012 - Harry Eagar
It's been a while since I've found a sound worthy of a post, but “Jews Harp” (Northside NSD 6011) earns a place by weirdness.

The liner notes assert that Tapani Varis, a Finnish master, achieves a “unique sound.” That's true.

Maybe I was expecting too much, having been amazed by the amount of sound Taj Mahal gets out of a kalimba (thumb piano), which is only slightly more sophisticated than a jews harp. Varis's renditions of Finnish and Norwegian folk tunes is interesting but not that interesting.
