    Oh, I wish I was a catfish

    Swimmin' after me
    Swimmin' after me
    'Cause these blues, oh, these blues

    Swimmin' after me
    Oh, rollin' on, oh, rollin' on

    Taj Mahal is an adventurer with taste. The veteran American bluesman has long been fascinated by African styles, and has explored the links with the #blues through his recordings with Toumani Diabate or live collaborations with Tinariwen. Now he has moved from Mali to Zanzibar, to team up with the island's best-known orchestra, and provide a reminder that there is great music in east Africa too. The Culture Musical Club are an intriguing, rhythmic and stately acoustic band. They mix violins with hand-drums and the oud, the Arabic lute, with the zither-like qanun in songs that are influenced by Arabic and Asian as well as African styles. The Guardian

    JIMI HENDRIX - In Sessions


    Jimi Hendrix - Jam Session with Taj Mahal (Full Album).

    - Country Blues

    - Astro Man
    - Valleys of Neptune
    - Power Of Soul

    Date: January 21, 1970.

    Taj Mahal - guitar

    James Marshall Jimi Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music.

    Born in Seattle, Washington, Hendrix began playing guitar at the age of 15. In 1961, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and trained as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division; he was granted an honorable discharge the following year. Soon afterward, he moved to Clarksville, Tennessee, and began playing gigs on the Chitlin' Circuit, earning a place in the Isley Brothers' backing band and later with Little Richard, with whom he continued to work through mid-1965. He then played with Curtis Knight and the Squires before moving to England in late 1966 after being discovered by Linda Keith, who in turn interested bassist Chas Chandler of the Animals in becoming his first manager. Within months, Hendrix had earned three UK top ten hits with the Jimi Hendrix Experience: Hey Joe, Purple Haze, and The Wind Cries Mary. He achieved fame in the U.S. after his performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and in 1968 his third and final studio album, Electric Ladyland, reached number one in the U.S.; it was Hendrix's most commercially successful release and his first and only number one album. The world's highest-paid performer, he headlined the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 before his accidental death from barbiturate-related asphyxia on September 18, 1970, at the age of 27.

    Hendrix was inspired musically by American rock and roll and electric blues. He favored overdriven amplifiers with high volume and gain, and was instrumental in utilizing the previously undesirable sounds caused by guitar amplifier feedback. He helped to popularize the use of a wah-wah pedal in mainstream rock, and was the first artist to use stereophonic phasing effects in music recordings. Holly George-Warren of Rolling Stone commented: Hendrix pioneered the use of the instrument as an electronic sound source. Players before him had experimented with feedback and distortion, but Hendrix turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary every bit as personal as the blues with which he began.

    Hendrix was the recipient of several music awards during his lifetime and posthumously. In 1967, readers of Melody Maker voted him the Pop Musician of the Year, and in 1968, Rolling Stone declared him the Performer of the Year. Disc and Music Echo honored him with the World Top Musician of 1969 and in 1970, Guitar Player named him the Rock Guitarist of the Year. The Jimi Hendrix Experience was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Rolling Stone ranked the band's three studio albums, Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, and Electric Ladyland, among the 100 greatest albums of all time, and they ranked Hendrix as the greatest guitarist and the sixth greatest artist of all time.


    Henry Saint Clair Fredericks (born May 17, 1942), who uses the stage name Taj Mahal, is an American blues musician, a self-taught singer-songwriter and film composer who plays the guitar, piano, banjo, and harmonica, among many other instruments. He often incorporates elements of world music into his works and has done much to reshape the definition and scope of blues music over the course of his almost 50-year career by fusing it with nontraditional forms, including sounds from the Caribbean, Africa, and the South Pacific.

    Gregg Allman with Taj Mahal | Live at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival


    In the penultimate release of the 2015 Blues & Brews live music video series, we revisit a significant piece of local music history. In 1991, the Town of Telluride had outgrown the performance stage in Town Park. With an expanding summer economy, the Fred Shellman Memorial Stage was built in its place. In July of that year, Taj Mahal famously sat-in during The Allman Brothers set at the Telluride Mid-Summer Music Festival. The song? Statesboro Blues.

    Fast forward to 25 years later, where we find Taj Mahal once again sitting in as a guest of Gregg Allman for another rendition of the song at the 2015 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Allman closed out the festival last year on Sunday, September 20th and would be the last band to ever play on the historic stage. The Town of Telluride has its sights set on a brand new stage debuting for the 2016 summer festival season.

    Imagine that. Gregg and Taj were among the first to play on the stage and the last to perform on it.

    With more than 40 albums, two GRAMMYs, and countless collaborations to his credit, Taj Mahal is one of the recording industry's most celebrated contemporary blues artists. In his never-ending exploration of the complex origins and underpinnings of American music, he has forged a four-decade career by gathering and distilling countless musical traditions from a range of geographical and cultural sources: the Mississippi Delta, the Appalachian backwoods, the African continent, the Hawaiian islands, Europe, the Caribbean and so much more.

    THE IMPACT OF BLUES on rock acts of the ’60s and ’70s was clear, but the truth is it's influenced just about everything we listen to today.

    She Caught The Katy - Taj Mahal


    She Caught the Katy (And Left Me a Mule To Ride) is a blues standard written by Taj Mahal and James Rachell. The song was first recorded for Taj Mahal's 1968 album The Natch'l Blues, and is one of Mahal's most famous tunes. It has since been covered many times, and is included on the soundtrack for the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers (the song greets Jake Blues as he leaves prison, in the beginning of the movie). According to John Belushi's widow, it was Belushi's favorite blues song.

    TajMo marks a timely convergence of the talents of two unique American artists who've already built iconoclastic individual legacies that have extended and expanded blues traditions into adventurous new territory. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, with the pair merging their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that's firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a playful sense of adventure. The album features guest appearances by Sheila E., Joe Walsh, Lizz Wright and Bonnie Raitt, who lends her voice to a distinctive cover of John Mayer’s anthemic Waiting on the World to Change.
