Nowadays Taj Mahal is an esteemed elder in the blues community. His longevity in the music business gives his music and his voice a resonant credibility. In the valley for the American Renewable Energy Day sessions in Aspen, Taj paid a visit to KDNK to check in with us. From sustainability to talking about those folks who worked from dark til dark, got their hands dirty, and soothed their soul with what we know now as the blues, Taj wowed us all with his majestic vibe.

These guys really have it going musically. Their new album "Last Chapter of Dreaming" proves it. If you like guitar heroics in a progressive rock context leavened with a jazzy saxophone you'll love this. And when they visited Express Yourself before their gig at the Beer Works, they proved themselves funny and engaging.
