FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: AUGUST 16TH 2005 TAJ MAHAL ESSENTIAL-WORLD WIDE RELEASE

“Taj Mahal is a blues man, first and foremost. Deep down to his marrow.
The blues infuses every honeyed note he sings, each and every guitar string he bends.
The blues comes in all colors, and Taj is a walking rainbow. Acoustic blues, electric blues, country blues, city blues, Piedmont blues, Delta blues, jazz blues, rhythm ‘n’ blues, barrelhouse piano blues – name your blues, and Taj has been there, sung that, made it his own.”
– From the liner notes by Tom Surowicz, Minneapolis
