Re: “Taj Mahal makes them sway

Very well said. "A Journeyman" - I like that. We were there that night among the group that were twenty-something a couple of decades ago. Seeing Taj Mahal was a highlight of my year so far. The first time I heard Taj Mahal was on my mom's eight-track tape player 25-30 years ago while cruising in the green van that was our shuttle during my 'tween' years. Since then his music has been intermittently playing in the background of my life. The crowd at the Pour House you mentioned - of very mixed ages - was interesting. I was thinking those youngsters couldn't possibley appreciate the depths of Taj's 'soul', but, as you reminded me - the less than god-like man with God-gifted talent, was so wise to say we were all there together on the same level - all feeling the music equally. A special night indeed, in the presence of an Olympian - no, but I would say a super-star musician for sure. And, because his role is a 'journeyman', we were able to see him, standing 4 feet in front of him. ... 'Legendary'is definitely a fitting desription of Taj Mahal. I don't know all the musicians he's influenced, but one I'm sure of is Keb Mo, I would venture to guess there are dozens of others. Taj's voice sounded terrific and he was one with the instrument in his hands. I hope he makes music for another twenty years!
