PT Gazell

About Me

World-renowned instrumentalist PT Gazell has been playing the diatonic harmonica for over 30 years. His specialty is the half-valved diatonic harmonica on which he has created a distinct and inimitable one-of-a-kind style. PT Gazell has performed with countless major artists over his career, including Johnny Paycheck, Mel McDaniel, Ricky Skaggs and Jerry Douglas. His unique and compelling style can be heard on scores of recordings in a variety of genres.

Born in Wisconsin, and now based in Nashville, Tennessee, PT is equally at home with a range of musical styles including, Jazz, Bluegrass, Country and Pop. PT was the first harmonica player, and the second artist, to be honored with a recording contract with famed Sugar Hill records. This association produced his first CD P.T. Gazell “Pace Yourself,” still considered the benchmark for diatonic Bluegrass Harmonica.

PT has appeared on national television in the United States & China on dozens of occasions, including shows such as “More Than Jazz” “Austin City Limits” “Nashville Now” & “Soundstage.” PT has recently completed a groundbreaking recording of Swing music with UK based Chromatic Harmonica wizard, Brendan Power entitled, “Back to Back.”

From Jazz to Bluegrass, PT Gazell covers the musical waterfront as a bandleader, a recording artist and soloist. The one common denominator is the pure musical joy that emanates with each carefully considered note he plays.

Howdy PT how is everything going man?  I am sitting here listening to your music.  Great stuff.  I would like to discuss with you a bit about the half valved harps sometime.  This is just great music that is over the top!!!  Very contagious.  Are you blowing through a Favorit.  I had the chance to play a Favorit Black and it was very responsive and bright.  Or is that an 1847 with Session plates?  I really like the Seydels.

Take care, be kind and keep your lips to the metal,
