New Release by Taj Mahal: Maestro

There is no doubt that two-time Grammy Award winning bluesman Taj Mahal is a Maestro. His new release, his first in five years has something for everybody. He is accompained by a range of musicians such as Ben Harper, Ziggy Marley, Los Lobos, and the Phantom Blues Band, among others.

He is also celebrating his 40th year as a professional musician and on this album he delivers traditional Delta blues, Southern soul, reggae and island rhythms, and African folk music.

Taj Mahal says of his new release;

"The one thing I've always demanded of the records I've made is that they be danceable," he says. "This record is danceable, it's listenable, it has lots of different rhythms, it's accessible, it's all right in front of you. It's a lot of fun, and it represents where I am at this particular moment in my life."
