Taj Attacks London

One of my favourite blues artist is Taj Mahal, I grew up listening Ain’t Gwine Whistle Dixie (Anymo’) as my cousin listened that piece everyday with Sultans of Swing. Henry Saint Clair Fredericks born in Harlem in 1942, Grammy award winner, blues musician who plays guitar, banjo, harmonica, and a little bit of piano, came to London last November to delight the British audience with his trio. 

John at Under The Bridge

I had the chance of seeing him perform live with his trio Taj, Bill Rich (Bass), and Kester Smith (Drums) in London at the Stamford Bridge venue Under The Bridge, the place was perfect it gave a really intimate atmosphere to the night. A magical night of blues, playing some of his hits such as, Corrina, Blues is Alright, Good Miss Brown, Zanzibar, and Lovin’ in my Baby Eyes.

Gigs always remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Rye” 

Jerry: Hey, you'll never guess who I bumped into. This guy Clyde. He's in your friend John Germaine's band there. 
Elaine: So what did he have to say? 
Jerry: Nothing. I told him you two were pretty hot and heavy. 
Elaine: Hot and heavy? You said hot and heavy? 
Jerry: Yeah. 
Elaine: What did you do that for? 
Jerry: What? 
Elaine: What if he tells John? Then John's going to think that I think that we're hot and heavy. I don't want John thinking that I'm hot and heavy if he's not hot and heavy. 
Jerry: Oh 
Elaine: I'm trying to get a little squirrel to come over to me here. I don't want to make any big, sudden movements. I'll frighten him away.
