The latest CD by bluesman and guitarist Buddy Guy is entitled «The Blues Is Alive And Well». That's a fact, and it’s thanks in no small measure to Guy himself. He's been playing the guitar for sixty years and now personifies the Chicago Blues – the raw and direct music from the south side of the Windy City – like no other. Singer Beth Hart hails from L.A. But with her there's no question of Californian frivolousness: her sound is raw, black and haunting. Her music tells tales of turbulent lives, ups and downs, heaven and hell. She too sings the blues – but the blues of the 21st century.
