Well done to Joanne Shaw Taylor for breaking into the list . . . must get round to hearing that Derek Trucks album!

Not being cynical or sexist but still not convinced about JST – Thomas Ruf has a lot of clout these days and has a lot of these guitar toting young ladies on his label. Having heard Chantel McGregor at Colne, I think she is a far better guitarist.
Ruthie Foster on the other hand is brilliant and deserves her placing and a worthy winner is Derek Trucks whose album is a masterpiece ( I forgot to include it in my albums of the year – it would have been up there alongside Rory Ellis). The Shemekia Copeland album is superb and anything by Tommy Castro deserves a placing.
