Even if you’ve only heard 10 blues songs in your entire life, send those 10 songs to me. Check the contact page for email (pkpatnaik at The lists I’ve received so far show a great diversity in blues tastes which is exactly what I’m looking for, keep them coming!

A quick instrumental track today from the Blue Boys. There’s not a lot of violin in blues music, but when it works, oh man does it ever work. This track Memphis Stomp features some of the best violin playing, blues or otherwise, I think I’ve ever heard. It’s a wonderful instrumental track -ushering in the fall season.

Blue Boys – Memphis Stomp
