Born in Harlem in the '40s, blues legend Henry St. Claire Fredericks, aka Taj Mahal (right), knew music was his path from a very young age. With musician parents, Taj Mahal grew up surrounded by music, taking to piano, clarinet, trombone, harmonica, guitar and, of course, singing. His music career has involved touring with his multiple bands over the years, recording numerous albums—including his latest, Hidden Treasures of Taj Mahal 1969-1973, a two-disc collection of unreleased material—and having his music featured in several movies, and his work isn't limited to the realm of blues. Fascinated with the roots of music, Taj Mahal is constantly learning about musical styles as diverse as Hawaiian, Caribbean and African, and he has no plans of slowing down. "Even at the end of 40 years, in many ways my music is just getting started," he says in his online bio. John Hiatt & the Combo will co-headline. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
