Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago means listening to Tyron Davis. Who is the King of the Blues? Robert Johnson? Or Bobby Blue Bland? Have a conversation with Dan Akroyd, comic/actor and he will tell you that Little Jr. Parker and Sonny Boy represent what real blues is all about. The blues for me means walking down Bourbon Street in New Orleans and walking into a bar and B.B. King is playing for a crowd of folks and you suddenly understand the true meaning of "jaw dropping". It means falling in LOVE with Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf while you are twenty years old....

This would be the perfect gift for my dad for father's day. I'd love to win it for him. Thanks for being so culturally diverse Whole Foods and supporting music from great African artists! I truly appreciate Whole Foods Market featuring this article by Dan Storper to show the roots of Blues music, and educating those who may have been unaware ot its origins. My favorite Blues artist is B.B King (and "Lucille")

B.B. King, Billie Holiday, and Etta James are among my favorites Blues artists. I'm especially partial to Bille and Etta, as they paved the way for powerhouse female vocalists. Their sultry voices gives me the chills. Truly amazing!

Putumayo's CD's are always full of top notch artists in their perspective genres gathered in one place! Being a music lover of all genres, they are the best in my book! I especially love it though when I come across a "new to me" artist. Thanks Whole Foods and Putumayo!

Blues music is alive and well here in the Gulf Coast region of Texas. We are lucky to have a thriving Blues scene with musicians in their 90's performing regularly. I would recommend the book "Down in Houston" by Roger Wood to every lover of Blues music history.

I have great friends who are introducing me to different artists/types of music. We are going to see a band - The Gravel Project - this month that incorporates blues into their sound. It would be great to have these CDs and continue my music introduction/education. :)

I really enjoy listening to some of the other Putumayo collections- world reggae, Afro-Portuguese, Women of Africa, to name a few. I'm also starting to listen to live local blues, and would love to hear some African blues.

Blues has been a part of my life since at least 1966 when I quite by chance heard B.B. King play in a hole-in-the-wall bar on Broad Street in Philadelphia. More good fortune for me when I found myself at the first annual Ann Arbor Blues Festival where just about every blues musician you might want to hear performed onstage and jammed behind the stage most of the night. Appreciate all blues and love most of it but B.B. King is it for me. He truly has something beyond description that touches me and never grows old.

The Blues is universal, but it is born in Africa. It grew wings in the U.S., especially flying from the South to Chicago and now spirals around the globe. One of my most memorable evenings was hearing a surprise set from Buddy Guy in his club last year.
