I've seen clips of Tommy Castro playing with other blues guitarists I like and I was not impressed. The other guys always seemed to blow him away. But I like what I've heard on XM's Bluesville channel. For example, this week's song, with it's smoking horns and tight groove bass line.

I've been a fan of Vince Flynn for years, but don't read him as regularly as I used to. He knows how to craft exciting stories and Protect and Defend is no exception to the rule. You know what you're getting from a Mitch Rapp book and that's what you get from this one. It's a tight story that's well told. I really liked the opening gambit that destroyed Iran's nuclear facility.
Another solid entry in the Rapp series.

This week's song is from bluesman Jimmie Vaughan. He has a new trio album out, but this song is from his 1998 album Out There. It's got a nice tight groove, some stellar guitar by Vaughan, and the distinctive sound of a Hammond B-3.
