Best of 2016 Pick 6

Alvin Youngblood Hart: Down in the Alley (Memphis Int’l, 2002)

I love the acoustic blues genre — if you haven’t heard Mississippi John Hurt cuz you’re a youngster and you been busy playing with your phone you should check him out.

Hart is a superlative guitar player specializing in finger picking.  He also sports a soulful, classic blues voice with a combination of gruffness and black church gospel melodies.
