Joe's Blues is an album by American jazz guitarists Joe Pass and Herb Ellis, recorded in 1968 and released posthumously in 1998 (see 1998 in music).[2]

The tracks for Joe's Blues were originally recorded in 1968 before Pass' later sessions with Ellis that produced Seven, Come Eleven and Two for the Road.
