For some more rockin' blues (well, rockabilly, its the halfway point between blues and rock), check out the Stray Cats.

If your big on Hendrix, check out Stevie Ray Vaughan for sure.

And if your diggin' Stevie, check out artists such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Chris Duarte, Indigenous, Jonny Lang, etc.

And you cant forget about Freddie King, Albert Collins, and Robert Cray either.

Jazz wise, dont leave out John Coltrane or Charlie Parker.

If your looking for a more bluesy, yet soulful touch, check out any of the wonderfull artists that were on the Stax record label in the '60s and '70s. Such as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, William Bell (the originater of Born Under a Bad Sign, for all you Albert King fans), and Johnnie Taylor.

And if your interested in acoustic blues, first I suggest getting into the old and original stuff, but if your looking for a more modern touch, check out Keb' Mo' for sure as well.

Ok, have fun.

Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, BB King, and Freddie King are some great electric guys to listen to.

For some acoustic blues check out Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton, Bukka White, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Son House, etc.

I mean in Kyle's case, it is in the best interest of mankind that he impregnate anything that looks at him funny...

This is probably going out on a bit too much of a limb, but Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band are fairly blues and jazz influenced.

For some techno-acid-free-psychadelic jazz stuff, check out some of Frank Zappa's stuff. Some of his stuff is straight rock, but stuff like Jazz From Hell and other albums from that era are technacifreepsychjazz.
