Omar Coleman: Born & Raised

Album Review

A harmonica player and singer in the great Chicago tradition.

At the age of 42, Omar Coleman is youngish, but his tastes aren’t. He looks up to Chicago predecessors such as the Sonny Boys and Junior Wells, and his material, though nearly all composed by him, takes familiar blues shapes and patterns – sometimes, perhaps, to his disadvantage.
