Martin Lang represents a younger generation of Chicago blues harmonica virtuosos. A longtime studio musician for the venerated Delmark Records, he has toured extensively backing up Chicago blues vocalists Taildragger and Willie Buck among others. He combines an assimilation of the sounds of the great Chicago blues harmonica artists such as Junior Wells and Little Walter with a sensibility attuned to contemporary trends in arts and music. He previously participated in an early CD release of Random Chance Records, "Harmonica Blues Orgy," produced by Dave Meyer. His four tracks on the 16 track CD that also featured Little Arthur Duncan, Easy Baby, and Willie "Big Eye" Smith helped make it one of the best selling of the labels releases.
