remains, a lesson in how to re-energize and re-interpret a type of music without losing sight of the traditions within. Taj, with the invaluable help of his tight and funky band, particularly the late, great, guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, just tears his way effortlessly through any manner of blues you care to name.
Country blues ? "She Caught The Katy" is a whipsaw romp through an old Yank Rachael tune with Taj showing his considerable harp skills to good effect.
How about some soul? "You Don't Miss Your Water" is the finest version of this soul standard
I have ever heard and there's some good ones out there too.
A little rock in your sock? "Ain't That A Lotta Love", a horn powered stroll through Bobby Bland territory, will put it there for ya.
Taj has gone on through his illustrious career to explore many other types of music and it's all been first rate, but for sheer youthful fun and exuberance you can start right here.
