Keb' Mo' Band
Keb Mo Band sees Blues titans Taj Mahal and KebMo share the stage with their band for an exciting night of music, performingsongs from their long-anticipated collaborative album TajMo, coming May 5, 2017 on Concord Records. While the two have known and influenced each other for decades, and Taj played a key role in Kebs first record deal, TajMo marks the first proper collaboration between Taj Mahal and Keb Mo. The album was self-produced by the duo and was mixed by Grammy Award-winner Ross Hogarth and mastered by Grammy Award-winner Richard Dodd. The 11-song set includes covers of John Mayer and The Who, as well as 6 original songs.TajMo brings out the best in both artists, with the pair merging their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music thats firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a playful sense of adventure. Dont Leave Me Here is a love letter to the south that sounds like an instant classic, and Soul interweaves world music with blues in a way that only Taj could pull off. Taj and Keb put a soulful spin on Mayers Waiting On The World To Change, on which Raitt lends her unmistakable vocals.Hes a stellar human being, just a brilliant man, Keb says of Taj, who first saw him play at a high school assembly. Making this record was a really big deal for me.Kebs really good at keeping the ball up in the air, Taj notes. Hes a hell of a guitar player, and Im just amazed at some of the stuff that he put out there.Taj Mahal has been recording and performing his unmistakable blend of blues and world music for over 50 years, winning multiple Grammys and collaborating with the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and more along the way. Keb Mo, who has often cited Taj as one of his musical heroes, is a 3-time Grammy Winner who has collaborated with everyone from Raitt to Jackson Browne and Buddy Guy.
