Texas may have produced more great unsung blues guitarists than any state in the nation. Mason Ruffner and Chris Duarte come immediately to mind as virtuosos who have labored in relative obscurity for years. Maybe it's the stiff competition that makes it so hard to break out of the Lone Star State. Had David Bowie and Jackson Browne not championed Stevie Ray Vaughan, he might never have transcended the Austin blues scene. It appears that, in order to break out from the blues pack these days, an artist must either be a teenage wunderkind or have the help of an industry insider to grease the wheels.

If a guitarist was ever worthy of such greasing, it's Houston's Mark May, the best guitarist you've never heard of, and arguably the most versatile talent working the blues today. He lets fly on his third album, "Doll Maker," the follow-up to 1997's brilliant "Telephone Road." Don't think Mark's been idle during the interval; he spent two productive years touring as Dickey Betts's guitarist.
