Taj Mahal

An Evening of Acoustic Music - Double-LP - 2009

The first vinyl edition of Taj Mahalís legendary Bremen concert from October 1993 is a true piece of art. Not only did the renowned Berlin visual artist Henning Wagenbreth again design the cover. He decided to come up with a new picture for each song, the combination of which constitutes the album sleeve. It is a multi-faceted work of art Ė to be a collectorís item soon. Especially since this wonderful German visual artist proves how much his work is sparked by his love for African-American culture. With these new paintings, the classic Mahal solo / duo performances Ė Howard Johnson guests on five tracks Ė is enriched in a vibrant and meaningful kind of way, adding to a new listening experience. It may be a familiar repertoire but these songs seem to never have sounded better, with the added visual dimension providing fresh energy and a renewed spirit.

Taj Mahal & The Hula Blues - 2013

Taj Mahalís first Hawaiian album is one of his most important accomplishments in more than one way: it pays homage to Hawaiian culture and celebrates intercultural connectivity. It also stands as a childhood dream come true, as Hawaiian music was part of the musical smorgasbord of the artistís formative years. The album is an easygoing and charmingly profound acknowledgement of Taj Mahalís status as Americaís foremost practitioner of blues/world/roots fusions. ďA cultural blend of joy, love and harmonyĒ was how he summed up these historic recording sessions back in 1997. The new vinyl release sticks to the original musical sequence but features new liner notes with more personal recollections. The legacy of the Hula Blues Band is a significant contribution to contemporary Hawaiian music. Moí Roots!
