    Robert Cray!
    Also Paul Rogers - Muddy Water Blues - great album. The first track starts quietly and then it just explodes and you have to get up and move. To be played at full volume. Bugger the neighbours.

    I like Sara Connor's music. Christmas in My Heart is my favourite.

    Default Jeff Healey Band

    One of the best blues/blues-rock artists I've heard is Jeff Healey. I think the Jeff Healey Band is quite under-rated and Healey himself was exceptionally talented considering he was blind. I'm not that into blues but I love this guy, my favorite track of his is 'See the Light' from his album of the same name.

    Charles Mingus's "Blues and Roots" doesn't exactly fit in the "blues" genre, but Mingus does completely dissect the art of the blues and converts it into jazz

    An expanded version of Junior Wells' Hoodoo Man Blues was just released - this is an incredible album and should be a part of every person's blues collection
