TajMo TicketsTwo worlds poignantly collide in the convergence between Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo', which is gloriously captured in the masterful productions of TajMo. The brilliant self-titled album was ultimately awarded a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2017. The collaborative effort featured hit singles like "Don't Leave Me Here" and "All Around the World." In addition to Lizz Wright's cameo on "Om Sweet Om," this debut release notably showcased covers of "Squeeze Box" by The Who's Pete Townshend and "Waiting on the World to Change" by John Mayer. Other special appearances include Joe Walsh, Sheila E. and Bonnie Raitt. With hearty doses of R&B, country and pop, TajMo transformed into an instant classic upon inception, and the project has subsequently spawned several North American tours.
How Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' Became TajMoThe two musicians that form TajMo are legends on their own, and each boasts an impressive career that has spanned decades. Taj Mahal started his career way back in 1964 alongside Ry Cooder in Rising Sons, and he spent his early years playing with major blues acts like Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Lightnin' Hopkins. Meanwhile, Keb' Mo' officially started his career in 1980, and he accumulated three previous wins of the Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy before earning it a fourth time with TajMo. This achievement also marked Taj Mahal's third time atop the same category.
