Bonnie Raitt! And my friend, blues harmonica player and vocalist, John Jochem, who you have not heard of yet, but perhaps someday!

We lived in Kansas City and would listen to the live music now and then in one of the many jazz rooms. I'd love this set!

I love any Putumayo CD, they put the best arts into the best mixes.

I would love to win this music! Nothing better than sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and good blues! One of my favorites is Billie Holiday....classic!

NPR just did a review of this set and was highly complimentary and enthusiastic about the CD.

It's that glorious mix of blues soul and African drums that hits the bottom of your stomach, and leaves you hungry for more. We know several major artists try and get the mix right, some more successful than others, and so far I've really liked what I've heard from your collection, and want to hear more!

One of my favorites would have to be Keb Mo. Fantastic musician and keeping blues alive.

I love the sound of the blues but don't really have a favorite. I prefer the soulfulness of women singing the blues. Plus, I love African music! I own about 40 Putumayo titles and even play them often in my classroom. Anything from this label is amazing!!!

I love the blues and recently was introduced by my brother in law to African music as he studied it at Berkley School of Music in Massachusetts - can't wait to hear the two groups combined!

Have not listened to a lot of African blues, but I am a fan of Buddy Guy and that says it all!

I have been desperately needing/wanting to add new music to my collection, but funds have been low. This could change the soundtrack of my life right now!

This is wonderful! I was just lamenting to a friend that "From Mali to Memphis" is out-of-print. I can't wait to hear this compilation!

I have tons of favorite blues groups, but they're mostly American-based. I'd love hear and learn more about African blues--what I know of that genre (such as Ali Farka Toure) I absolutely love!

I have so many that I could name that I love when it comes to Blues.... It is also universal!! I was in S. Africa last month (June) and saw a couple of blues musicians there. Regardless of your location in the world... Blues is Blues is Blues!! But if I had to name a few artists: Eric Clapton, Tommy Castro, Glenn Kaiser, Larry Howard, Bryn Hayworth, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, etc.

I love the blues/jazz etc.! as for a fav artist, not sure. I love the oldies...the older the better! I like to hear the scratch of the record playing or the slightly hollow/treble sound from it being the early days of music recording. Really adds a dimension to it when you know the singers/song writers are long gone from this physical plane of existence!
