Taj Mahal Trio

When: Sat., Feb. 18, 8 p.m. 2012

Since getting his start playing in Rising Sons with Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal's gigged with folks from the Rolling Stones to Buddy Guy. He exhibited trailblazing interest in Caribbean and West African music during the '70s, seamlessly incorporating it into his sound. After a fallow period, he returned to prominence amid the Stevie Ray-led renaissance. Taj Mahal's a fluid, keenly suggestive player, whose licks often echo other styles (jazz or reggae, for instance) without straying far from his blues-baked heart. His gruff, rumbling baritone nicely complements the sound. —Chris Parker
