Joanne Shaw Taylor Spinning Blues on The Blues Album a Stupendous album that may be covers, but one that also illustrates how perfect a musician Joanne is and how she continues to grow and brings the blues bang up to date by using her smoky vocals and stunning techniques to brilliant effect.
Five Points Gang have an APB on Wanted a great listen for an album of quality blues with a few other flavours mixed subtly in. It may not be earth-shatteringly new but they feed their influences and write new old songs: that is very difficult to do and they do it very well.
Big Daddy Wilson shares his Hard Time Blues a great listen; varied, skilled instrumentation and vocals with blues aplenty and some soul shining through on a couple of tracks.
