    The Ozark Mountain Daredevils used it pretty liberally on their debut album, as I recall.

    The sister songs "Premiers Symptômes" and "Lunatic Asylum" from Serge Gainsbourg's L'Homme À Tête De Chou. From, amazingly, 1976.

    I've read that Dizzy Gillespie used it a lot in his later years.

    I think you are hearing a bass harmonica, played by Charlie McCoy. It is a wonderful song!
