The fabulous Adler boys

Today it was reported that Jerry Adler, virtuoso harmonica player, died 10 days ago. He was the "lesser known" of the fabulous Adler boys. Larry Adler garnered more fame (having the distinction of dying 9 years before his brother), but apparently Jerry was equally talented--and they were known to play duets, too. If you thought that the harmonica was only an instrument for blues, then you haven't heard these guys play. Plenty available on You Tube (playing "Rhapsody in Blue") &c. RIP and long live the harmonica concerto!
