Taj Mahal On Mountain Stage

Loading the player ...
Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, a.k.a. Taj Mahal, started performing in his native New England, and developed his roots- and blues-influenced performance style after moving to California and playing in bands with Ry Cooder, among others. He often shared billing with '60s rock acts at the Fillmore West, and grew into a popular attraction at folk, blues and jazz venues around the world.
Over the years, Taj Mahal has added African, Caribbean and Pacific Island influences to his powerful sound. But in this short set, recorded on Jan. 29, 1995 in Charleston, W.Va., he stuck to the blues and boogie songs that helped win him a legion of fans.
