Buddy Guy is recognized as one of the last living Blues Masters. He was honored last summer in the PBS American Masters series with a documentary called The Blues Chase the Blues Away. Another documentary called The Torch will be released in select theaters on March 18.

Buddy Guy is one of the most celebrated blues guitarists of his generation (arguably the most celebrated), possessing a sound and style that embodies the traditions of classic Chicago blues while also embracing the fire and flash of rock & roll.

The title of Buddy Guy’s 2018 album says it all: The Blues Is Alive and Well. The legendary blues artist’s 18th solo LP and follow-up to 2015’s Born to Play Guitar showcases his raw and unadulterated sound, its 15 tracks are a true pleasure for aficionados and genre newcomers alike. The Blues Is Alive and Well came together when Tom Hambridge, frequent Guy collaborator and producer, came to Guy with a collection of songs he figured would be perfect for a new full-length album. Guy sounds every bit as vital and youthful as he did dating back to his early collaborations with the late Junior Wells, and it’s inspiring to hear a veteran artist laying down the blues with such gusto.
