Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features 3x-GRAMMY® Award-Winning & 14x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Blues Hall of Famer TAJ MAHAL on Saturday July 23 at 7:30 P.M. In addition to his GRAMMY® Awards, Taj Mahal has also won 7 Blues Music Awards including the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year (2018) which is the most coveted and prestigious Blues Music Award given every year.

Taj Mahal is a towering musical figure — a legend who transcended the blues not by leaving them behind, but by revealing their magnificent scope to the world. Quantifying the 77-year-old’s significance is impossible, but people try anyway.

If anyone knows where to find the blues, it’s Taj. A brilliant artist with a musicologist’s mind, he has pursued and elevated the roots of beloved sounds with boundless devotion and skill. Then, as he traced origins to the American South, the Caribbean, Africa, and elsewhere, he created entirely new sounds, over and over again.

As a result, he’s not only a god to rock-and-roll icons such as Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones, but also a hero to ambitious artists toiling in obscurity who are determined to combine sounds that have heretofore been ostracized from one another. No one is as simultaneously traditional and avant-garde.

A 2017 GRAMMY® Award Win for ‘TajMo’, Taj’s collaboration with Keb’ Mo’, brought his GRAMMY® tally to 3 Wins and 14 Nominations, and underscored his undiminished relevance more than 50 years after his solo debut.

“We are honored to have Blues Legend Taj Mahal grace the stage at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “We look forward to Taj Mahal bringing his incredible dedication and passion for the blues to Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club’s stage for everyone to see, hear and experience!”
