Showcasing the Blues, Vol. 3 is a collection of Florida guitarists who record for the Mosher St. label in conjunction with the South Florida Blues Society. The 15 artists include David Shelley, J.P. Soars, Josh Smith, Frank Ward, Kenny Tsak, Josh Rowand, Michael Locke, Shawn Starski, Darrell Raines, Eric Austin, and Steve Laudicina. A few artists who were included on Vol. 2 also have tunes on Vol. 3 including Albert Castiglia ("Big Toe"), Joey Gilmore ("You Put the Rush on Me"), Joel DaSilva ("Boogie Real Low"), and the Jeff Prine Group ("Don't Change Me, Enjoy Me"). Overall, this is an excellent sampler of what the 2000s Florida blues scene has to offer.
