PORTSMOUTH, NH, May 13, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features 3-Time GRAMMY® Award-Winning, 14-Time GRAMMY®-Nominated Blues Hall of Famer TAJ MAHAL on Saturday July 23 to 7:30 p.m. In addition to his GRAMMY® Awards, Taj Mahal has also won 7 Blues Music Awards, including the BB King Entertainer of the Year (2018), which is the most coveted and prestigious Blues Music Award given out each year.
Taj Mahal is a towering musical figure – a legend who transcended the blues not by leaving them behind, but by revealing their magnificent reach to the world. Quantifying the significance of the 77-year-old is impossible, but people are trying anyway.
If anyone knows where to find the blues, it’s Taj. A brilliant artist with the mind of a musicologist, he pursued and elevated the roots of beloved sounds with boundless dedication and skill. Then, while tracing its origins to the southern United States, the Caribbean, Africaand elsewhere, he created entirely new sounds over and over again.
As a result, he’s not just a god for rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones, but also a hero for ambitious artists working in obscurity who are determined to combine sounds that have hitherto been ostracized from one another. No one is traditional and avant-garde at the same time.
A 2017 GRAMMY® award for ‘TajMo’, Taj’s collaboration with Keb ‘Mo’, took his GRAMMY® total 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 on stage at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” mentioned Suzanne Bresette, General Manager of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “We are impatient to Taj Mahal bringing his incredible dedication and passion for the blues to the stage at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club for all to see, hear and experience!”
Tickets to the 3x-GRAMMY® Award-winning and 14x-GRAMMY® Award-nominated Blues Hall of Famer TAJ MAHAL at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club on Saturday July 23 to 7:30 p.m. are available on ticket master and the Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club website.
