A playlist featuring musicians paying tribute to the music that inspired them to do what they do, be it electric jazz or R&B of the '70s and '80s, the Mississippi Blues of the '40s and '50s, and the music of their mentors. The second half features three compelling albums featuring tight bands led by forward looking bass players.

Happy listening!
