Two Generations of American Masters Join Forces for First Collaboration Complete with Cameos from Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sheila E, Lizz Wright & More!

TajMo is a historic collaboration between two generations of blues giants, converging their singular talents for the first time ever on an album of original songs and covers, featuring cameos from Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sheila E., Lizz Wright, and many more. While the two have known and influenced each other for decades, and Taj played a key role in Keb's first record deal, TajMo marks the first proper collaboration between Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo'. The album was self-produced by the duo and was recorded by Zach Allen, John Caldwell and Casey Wasner at Nashville's Stu Stu Studio. The 11-song set includes covers of John Mayer and The Who, as well as 6 original songs.

TajMo brings out the best in both artists, with the pair merging their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that's firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a playful sense of adventure. "Don't Leave Me Here" is a love letter to the south that sounds like an instant classic, and "Soul" interweaves world music with blues in a way that only Taj could pull off. Taj and Keb' put a soulful spin on Mayer's "Waiting On The World To Change," on which Raitt lends her unmistakable vocals.

"He's a stellar human being, just a brilliant man," Keb' says of Taj, who first saw him play at a high school assembly. "Making this record was a really big deal for me." "Keb's really good at keeping the ball up in the air," Taj adds. "He's a hell of a guitar player, and I'm just amazed at some of the stuff that he put out there."
