Taj Mahal

~Z.T.~I didn’t know what to expect at all. I knew more about Taj Mahal the place than I did about Taj Majal the artist. And I don’t even know what continent Taj Mahal is in. 66 Year old Henry Saint Clair Fredricks, better known as Taj Mahal was a blast. Backed by just a bass and drums, the blues-man poured soul into every note, feeding the crowd pure eyebrow flipping, lip quivering blues.
The guy standing next to Andy was in awe of how much Taj Mahal has seen in his life.

And what a smooth operator. Telling the ladies to stick out their chests and swivel his hips, he was quite the coy boy. Gettin’ high up on his toes, sashaying around the stage, he moved
his large old body around with ease.

He told us he wanted to sing about completion blues. “Not wah wah I can’t even get-R-done blues.” (Man I hate that phrase.)An extended bass solo had the entire crowd ooh-ing and ahh-ing.

Taj may have gotten the biggest response for an early afternoon show as he actually got the crowd to scream for him. He worked the ladies over first and got the men jealous.

-A.S. Just wanted to make a couple quick notes about the show in addition to Zack’s review. At one point our friend Paul yelled for “Little Brown Dog,” which Taj was impressed he even knew. He asked who said that and added that he must have some bootlegs, since it is not an often requested song.This man kept everyone from feeling blue on Sunday at Rothbury, where the theme is green.

Rather than playing that, Taj played a crowd favorite in “Queen Bee.” Since everyone there opted for Taj Mahal on this Sunday afternoon instead of church, he made sure to get a good amout of call and response in with the crowd on tunes like “Uh Huh Blues.” I really can’t say enough good things about this great show.
