Corky Siegel has new music out — just pick your album. The blues harmonica player has released three separate recordings this year, each featuring different players and styles.

On Corky Siegel's Traveling Chamber Blues Show, he combines the unlikely genre of blues and chamber music. On Flash Forward, Siegel collaborates again with guitarist Jim Schwall for the pair's first studio recording in 32 years. And on Buried Alive in the Blues, Siegel joins eight other musicians under the moniker Chicago Blues Reunion.

Scott Simon talks with Siegel about the releases.
