Taj Mahal's 40th Anniversary Tour To Coincide With Release of Maestro
Published July 18, 2008

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal will embark on a nationwide tour in the final months of 2008 in support of his latest effort, Maestro.

A two-time GRAMMY® winner and one of the most influential American blues and roots artists of the past half-century, Taj Mahal will tour the nation in the final months of 2008 to support the September 30 release of Maestro, on Heads Up International.

 

Maestro, Taj’s first U.S recording in five years, marks the 40th anniversary of his rich and diverse recording career by mixing original material with chestnuts from vintage sources and newcomers alike. Guests on this anniversary gala include Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Angelique Kidjo, Los Lobos, and Ziggy Marley.

 

Maestro captures the same level of intensity and depth that has characterized every one of Taj’s recordings since his self-titled debut album in 1968.
