Celebrating new cd release Maestro
“This irrepressibly eclectic bluesman welcomes a handful of guest stars on Maestro – Angelique Kidjo, Ben Harper and Jack Johnson among them – but keeps a steady hand.
He’s celebrating 40 years in the business and knows how to keep things moving.”
The New York Times
“No artist has stretched the definition of blues like Taj Mahal.
Besides traditional delta and New Orleans-style blues, Taj has added West Indian, African, reggae, and Hawaiian slack-key styles to his big blues tent.
Celebrating his 40th year of making records, he continues his mastery of the blues with Maestro.
It’s a hip-shaking collection of standards such as ‘Scratch My Back’ and ‘Diddy Wah Diddy,’ plus some great new Taj originals.
Special guests Jack Johnson, Los Lobos, and Ziggy Marley help make this a memorable anniversary, indeed.”
Christian Science Monitor
“Taj Mahal has been all over the world in his more than 40 years of writing and playing music, and he’s picked up a little something from everywhere.
You can hear it in his upcoming disc, Maestro, a collection that moves from stomping blues like ‘Diddy Wah Diddy’ and ‘TV Mama’ to the reggae of ‘Black Man, Brown Man’ with equal passion and conviction.
The album, due out Sept. 30, features guests and admirers like Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Los Lobos, and Ziggy Marley.”
