A Blues Legend Comes to Brooklyn

September 21st, 2011

Taj Mahal Trio – Brooklyn Bowl – September 20, 2011

Why is it that blues music makes everyone feel better, even in moments when all other remedies fail at the task? It’s hard to say for certain, but the theory seems to test out.Last night, the couples club came out to Brooklyn Bowl to boogie a bunch, with no small amount of woogie on hand. Taj Mahal, true to his trademark style, sported a fiery Hawaiian shirt and a simple straw hat as he set the crowd to shimmying and shaking. And that’s about the sum of it. Really, what else is there to say? A blues legend in Brooklyn doing what he does best. Thank you, sir, may we have another? —JC McIlwaine
