The Blues is...

The Blues is about humanity,
the personal touch,
touching people's lives,
touching everyday life

"the Blues gives you back your soul" Taj Mahal

"Reggae gives you back your body.
Jazz gives you back your mind.
And Blues gives you back your soul."
Taj Mahal
June 2009 Blues Revue magazine

The newest issue (June 2009) of Blues Revue magazine contains an interview with Taj,
