“Let Me Get Closer” – Aki Kumar (Don’t Hold Back / Greaseland)

Born in Bombay, harmonica man Aki Kumar has become a fixture on the San Francisco blues scene.  His first album, DON’T HOLD BACK, is out now, showcasing his own original songs, and his take on blues standards from Snooky Prior, Memphis Slim, and more.

This is old school blues at its finest by way of India.  And the lad has soul to spare.
