Om Suite Ohm

Om Suite Ohm, Harry’s eleventh release in twelve years, is the first to feature his “Electric Bollywood style” slide guitar techniques. The album, originally intended to be purely instrumental, ventures away from his established “roots-raga” blues style into a fuller and even more exploratory sound. It is also his first recording to use violins, cello and sirangi, which provide a lovely counterpoint to the slide guitar work. Plenty of inspired Hammond organ playing by Australia’s Clayton Doley rounds out the mix with a bit of funky groove. Barry Cleveland of Guitar Player Magazine calls it “his most fully realized work to date. His resplendently nuanced playing is joyous and poignant, earthy and empyrean in turns, complemented beautifully by his warm, emotive voice. The songs are accessible yet replete with exotic timbral twists courtesy of n’goni, nyckelharpa, didgeridoo, sarangi, and his signature 20-string Mohan Veena. A tasteful re-imagining of Coltrane’s A Love Supreme emphasizing and expanding the vocals is just one of many highlights.”

Bread and Buddha

Featuring killer slide guitar, Mohan Veena and piano, Harry’s ninth album is a timely reflection on the ephemeral nature of human existence. An intrepid traveler from the very beginning, Harry Manx’s ninth album is a culmination of thirty-five years of world exploration. “Bread and Buddha” is one man’s musical meditation on the ephemeral nature of the human experience. The songs inhabit “a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force”.

Harry has pulled out all the stops with the instrumentation on this outing, including ample use of piano, organ, and scored strings along with drums and bass. This gives the songs a lushness and maturity, much like a well-seasoned wine. Two years in the making, the album is self produced with help from Juno-award winning engineer John “Beetle” Bailey. Come explore the new world geography as interpreted by Harry Manx …

Harry Manx & Friends Live at the Glenn Gould Studio

Harry Manx has been putting his own personal spin on the blues for some time now, serving up his distinctive and hypnotic brew of Eastern and Western sounds to audiences worldwide. Combining the sensuality of traditional blues with transcendent Eastern sounds has become his trademark. In March 2007, CBC Producer Todd Fraracci concocted a bewitching blend of musicians for a special concert event entitled “Heaven and Earth – Harry Manx and Friends” at the Glenn Gould Studio to further explore this delicate balance. Matching the eclectic influences on Harry’s music, he is joined here by a dazzling array of musicians that perfectly complement his style, allowing the music to successfully venture all over the world map and highlighting his Indian influences. Previously recorded material is presented with added dimensions, producing new revelations that occur with each listen.
