I was thinking of Tedeschi Trucks Band. Derek's playing, Susan's voice, that crazy dude on sax, the rest of the band... they gel wonderfully in my opinion.

For me it would probably be Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Bob Brozman is still the best acoustic blues guitarist I've ever seen in concert.

There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.

Eric Clapton
Joe Bonamassa
Jeff Beck

I'd always like to come up with something different and call someone very little known player the best, but to be honest, I have to be generic, again.
Stevie Ray Vaughan is great, but I think the best one is Clapton. But they both are white people and my knowledge about blues is pretty little, so I guess there could have been better player somewhere but they are not as well known as those two.

Let me help you with that question, the Best Blues Guitarist was Albert King.

Gary Lucas is the king.

At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

^ That`s an intricate piece which really showcases GL`s playing, Frownland.

Have you heard the album Rishte that he made with Najma Akhtar ?
I found it pretty disappointing because Gary`s contribution is largely lost beneath Najma`s vocals. It feels like he relegated himself to acoustic rhythm guitarist.

At least in this clip with Najma Akhtar, he`s plugged in and doing something noticable, so imo it`s an improvement on Rishte:-
