IN CELEBRATION OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH

The Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music and the Brooklyn Museum proudly present
LEGENDARY Recording Artist
TAJ MAHAL
IN A CONCERT TO BENEFIT THE BROOKLYN-QUEENS CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC
To celebrate Black History Month, The Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music concert series Jazz at the Conservatory, in partnership with the Brooklyn Museum, presents two time Grammy award winning, Taj Mahal.
The legendary Taj Mahal has been playing his own distinctive brand of soulful music, variously described as Afro-Caribbean blues, folk-world-blues, hula blues, folk-funk, and a host of other hyphenations, for more than 40 years.
In 1971 he released the influential album The Real Thing recorded live at the Fillmore East.
at that time it was unheard of to have a Blues artist accompanied by tubas!
This event reunites him with several of the musicians that recorded with him at that time.
Howard Johnson, Bob Stewart, Joe Daley and Earl McIntyre (Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music’s Jazz Division Director), as well as veterans Buddy Williams, Earl Gardner, Victor See Yuen, John di Martino, Ron Jackson and Jerome Harris.
The Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music has been serving the community for over a century promoting individual, professional and community growth through music, and making music accessible to people of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels.
One of the ways we fulfill our mission is by holding remarkable events such as this at affordable prices. Our commitment to the community and our world-class faculty make events such as this concert a reality.
