Album Review

Señor Blues is one of Taj Mahal's best latter-day albums, a rollicking journey through classic blues styles performed with contemporary energy and flair. There's everything from country-blues to jazzy uptown blues on Señor Blues, and Taj hits all of areas in between, including R&B and soul. Stylistically, it's similar to most of his albums, but he's rarely been as effortlessly fun and infectious as he is here.

Customer Reviews

Queen Bee

Queen Bee is one of my favorite songs ever. Aside from the beauty of the opening track, the album is great, with some soul covers (Think, Mr. Pitiful) thrown into the mix along with the usual blues fare. This album is a great effort by Taj Mahal, and I have listened to it over and over again.

This Is It!

Wading through Taj Mahal’s extensive 40 plus year discography collection can be a daunting task even for the seasoned listener—let alone a neophyte fan. But Señor Blues makes that task child’s play because this album has it all. Say what? Yes you heard (or read) me right, no use going on shoutin’ and carrying on—this album is it! Heck, don’t believe me? Well, it won the Best Contemporary Blues Album at that year's Grammy Awards. We all know Taj is an eclectic purveyor of first class music running an almost endless gamut of styles and genres. Country Blues, R&B, Soulful Ballads; this album has it all. So just buy it, sit back and put your groove on—and when you finish singing and dancing, well buy another Taj Mahal album. There are worse ways to go through life my friend. Now turn the volume up!

One of the most prominent figures in late 20th century blues, singer/multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal played an enormous role in revitalizing and preserving traditional acoustic blues. Not content to stay within that realm, Mahal soon broadened his approach, taking a musicologist's interest in a multitude of folk and roots music from around the world -- reggae and other Caribbean folk, jazz, gospel, R&B, zydeco, various West African styles, Latin, even Hawaiian.
