In an art form such as the blues, there is a tug-of-war between adhering to the roots of the traditional sound and respecting the influences from the ancestors, and the need to create your own art that reflects your life experiences and the zeitgeist. Kevin Moore, also known as Keb' Mo', has straddled that tightrope amazingly well over his long career, and continues to do so on Good to Be—a diverse blues/Americana album with a lot of unique touches. The bulk of the album was written and recorded in Nashville, evident in the laid-back and sure tone of the production, from Vince Gill's hand on the mixing board, to guests such as Darius Rucker on "Good Strong Woman." "The Medicine Man," featuring Old Crow Medicine Show, will have you thinking back to The Band's Music from Big Pink. There's a great, mostly straight-ahead cover of Bill Withers' classic "Lean On Me". The mellow, acoustic opener "Good To Be (Home Again)" frames Keb's soulful voice in a poignant lyric about walking the streets of your youth and being revitalized by the familiar sights and sounds (prompted by Keb's purchase and renovation of his childhood home in Compton). Other nice brushstrokes include the jazzy, smoky horns and after-dark vibe of "All Dressed Up" and the heartfelt, moving lyrics about striving for social justice and young people speaking out for their rights of "Louder." Keb' Mo' is a consummate musician constantly striving to excel and be true to his vision, all the while building on the foundations of the blues and Americana music that fueled his passion in the first place. © Rick Banales/Qobuz

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.
