Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters

Over the last five years, former Roomful of Blues guitarist Ronnie Earl has released a series of stunning instrumental albums fusing jazz and blues with equal parts verve and soul. In the fifth of these sessions, The Colour of Love, Earl unwinds gorgeous guitar excursions that pay homage to artists from Carlos Santana to Albert Collins to Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. Saxophonist Hank Crawford drops by for a few tracks, adding spice to an already flavorful musical ragout. (Verve)
