I came across Congo Acoustic from Mose Se Sengo 'fan fan' a few years back while browsing a CD store. It was one of the best Jazz/blues albums I ever bought - every time I listen to it I feel cheered up.

I am so excited to hear about this CD! I am very enthusiastic about Africa - and to hear that this CD encorporates African music with blues is wonderful!! B.B. King is one of the best Blues artists in my opinion.

What a fantastic opportunity to win six of these fabulous CD's!! I will share them with my friends, this Putumayo music is so rich and wonderful that I think many people in Wyoming have not heard about it. This would be a good opportunity for me to share this music.. I am from Santa Fe,New Mexico, so I am a long time listener!! Thank you very much for the chance to win such a marvelous set of CD's Paw

Ray Charles,Freddie King and Jimmy Reed are some of the best in my mind. Putumayo’s African Blues would be a nice touch to my music.

I love the blues. Music from around the world would make for a well rounded addition to my collection. I also like the fact that the sales pay it forward.

Blues is the type of music we figure skate to sometimes. I first was exposed to blues music before I even started school and know my son enjoys listening to it also.

I've been playing guitar for years, and really love flamenco. Then I decided to try to learn blues. I figured it's like flamenco in that it's an improvised form that's expressive and connected to the lament of a particular culture. I failed at it. Abysmally. That failure should inspire me to sing the blues. haha So I stick to listening to Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter, Etta James, and also the modern interpretations of blues like early Rolling Stones and SRV. Thanks, this is a cool contest!

It used to be all Etta, but life changes and now it's more the swingy-swing blues. But it's all good!

I used to hear John Mayall and The Blues Breakers, Buddy Guy, in the Village when I was a kid. Love all the Blues.....Blues is a feeling. When Taj Mahal dissed The Chambers Bros. back in MS when they were all sharecroppers kids, because they only had one pr of shoes amongst them...well, I'm sure that gave them the Blues...but they might not have been too proud to say it....but you listen to their early gospel renditions...and you can hear them singing it. Kudos for starting Putamayo records.
