Jazz Harmonica

Bill's Bio

Bill McLean (in his own words)

Click the album picture below to buy

Best known I suppose for my playing and arrangements with the Original Harmonica Band.


My professional background spans more than 50 years -- beginning with Alex Novelle and his Harmaniacs in 1958. Throughout my career I have played in every venue imaginable including: radio, TV, concert halls, night clubs, hospitals, prisons, military bases, shopping center openings, schools, picnics, weddings, etc. etc.

Throughout my career I have met and performed with many great and famous people including: Bob Hope, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Johnny Ray, Donald O'Connor and many more.

My favorite music is jazz. That's when I am most able to appreciate the talent that God has given me. I feel like that's when He takes over and plays through me.


God bless you all! I hope this helps you to know me better.
