Taj Mahal And Keb' Mo'
Jun 9 , 2017 Doors: 7:30PM Show: 8:00PM
TajMo, released May 5, 2017, via Concord Records, marks an once-in-a-lifetime convergence of the talents of two unique American artists who've already built significant individual legacies that have consistently expanded and extended American blues traditions into astonishing new territory. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, who merge their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that's firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a restless, spirited sense of adventure. "We wanted to do a real good record together, but we didn't want to do the record that everyone expected us to do," blues legend Taj Mahal says of TajMo, his historic collaboration with fellow true believer Keb' Mo'. "There wasn't a bunch of cryin' and ringin' hands, we just got together and it came together pretty naturally. I think it's a pretty upbeat, celebratory record, and it couldn't have come at a better time." The iconoclastic pair's combustible creative chemistry powers such unforgettable new originals as "Don't Leave Me Here," "All Around The World," "That's Who I Am," and the anthemic "Soul." TajMo also features guest appearances by Sheila E., Lizz Wright and Bonnie Raitt, who lends her voice to a memorable cover of John Mayer's "Waiting On The World To Change"; in addition, Joe Walsh adds his trademark guitar work to "Shake Me In Your Arms" and an inspired reading of The Who's classic "Squeeze Box." The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome multiple GRAMMY winners Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate discussion on both of their distinguished careers and their new collaboration record TajMo, followed by a special performance. The evening will be hosted by Scott Goldman, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum.
