In a wide-ranging interview conducted by Ross Garren for in January 2015, Adam Gussow talks about his nearly three decades of experience as a blues-playing overblower. Along with Carlos del Junco, Gussow is one of the first players to make overblows, a technique brilliantly elaborated by jazzman Howard Levy in the mid-1980s, into a central stylistic element of an amplified blues harmonica sound. (Earlier overblow investigators include Paul Oscher, Will Scarlett, and Mike Turk.)
