I agree with Teri....Bryan Lee's "Live at the Old Absinthe (Friday Night)" is a GREAT CD...my GF and I listen to it often. Much more of a "classic" blues player, but he can light it up when he wants to. Some great original material, different takes on some classic songs (Crosscut Saw, The Sky Is Crying, Five Long Years) and he's a great storyteller. I just wish he played closer to DC, but I am definitely going to plan a roadtrip to see him someday soon.
Don't really know much about Otis Rush....friend lent me a live CD with him and Clapton and another semi-famous guitarist, didn't really blow me away. The hook for "All Your Love (I Miss Loving)" is a classic, though!
Keep on rockin' the blues
Takers get the honey, givers sing the blues
