Buddy Guy believes in showmanship. For two hours Sunday at the Keswick Theater, the 58-year-old Chicago blues legend gave away guitar picks, flailed at his instrument in unnatural positions, sauntered through the aisles playing a cordless guitar, and offered tributes to famous names in blues and rock as though his survival depended on it. Along the way, he managed to execute some remarkable guitar solos. These moments of severe, blistering blues contrasted with his more jovial entertaining style and served notice that the blues for Guy remain a serious business.

"We didn't want to come out as a blueprint of yesterday," Carlos Santana reports from his home outside San Francisco, "so we changed everything around. " The live Sacred Fire (Polydor), released less than a year ago, bears little resemblance to his current show. "We do anything and everything to constantly keep all the windows and the doors open in the house so it's vented. You know, you don't want it to smell like last night. " While Sacred Fire includes a smattering of new tunes among the inevitable hits, at the Mann on Sunday Santana will play a smattering of even newer tunes among the inevitable hits.

The noirish Latino rumble of Los Lobos and the blustery roar of Buddy Guy in the Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall on Thursday night were the sound of the blues at its red-hot, wiggly and weirdest best. Los Lobos, the first to perform, have refined their fusion of Los Angeleno punk, Mexican roots music, and ambient noise to include an eerie psychedelic feel. But each song's innate sadness is clear and blue. Singer-guitarist Cesar Rosas brought blistering, fuzz-toned solos to the fluty "Hearts of Stone" and the Mexicali rockabilly of "Shakin' Shakin' Shakes," stretching out each with a '60s-mystical feel.

Chicago bluesman Jimmy "Fast Fingers" Dawkins, 76, known for his stellar guitar playing and mellow singing voice, has died. Delmark Records owner Bob Koester said Friday that Dawkins died last Wednesday. The cause of death was not immediately known. Mr. Dawkins was born in Tchula, Miss., and taught himself to play guitar before moving to Chicago in the 1950s. Koester said Mr. Dawkins did not begin his music career immediately, instead working in a box factory before taking to Chicago's streets to play for tips.

A concert film that's a must-see - and must-hear - for fans of the blues, Lightning in a Bottle brings together veterans and newcomers, guitar legends, croaky old warblers, spry chanteuses, and a couple of rock carpetbaggers (Steven Tyler, please go away!). "An All-Star Salute to the Blues" took place on Feb. 7 of last year at New York's Radio City Music Hall, where director Antoine Fuqua oversaw a team of camera and sound folk documenting the performances of B.B. King, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, James "Blood" Ulmer, Hubert Sumlin, John Hammond, Bonnie Raitt, John Fogerty, Chuck D., David "Honeyboy" Edwards, and many more.

G.E. Smith rocked the North Star Bar on Saturday when he and his Generic Blondes threw down some righteous electric blues. The band is a rotating cast of musicians organized by Smith, former leader of the Saturday Night Live house band and a natural blond. On Saturday, he was joined by bassist Paul Ossola, also from the Saturday Night Live band and a bottle blond, and drummer Steve Holley, a brunet. This is cliche by now: It's amazing how much power can come from three instruments when the players are pulling their weight.
