Ta­jmo Con­cord Records ✪✪✪✪✪

Take two gen­er­a­tions of blues le­gends, record 11 tracks and watch the mu­sic fly! With cov­ers and orig­i­nals, cameos from Bon­nie Raitt, Joe Walsh and a killer band, Ta­jmo is a fine al­bum. Opener Don’t Leave Me Here is a steady groover, with great vo­cals, tasty gui­tar bursts and har­mon­ica licks. Four-on-the­floor stom­per, All Around The World up­lifts with a gospel back­ing and spir­ited play­ing. The soul­ful Om Sweet Om has more cool harp licks while foot-tap­per Shake Me In Your Arms glis­tens with Strat fills and rhythms. The slides and acous­tics come out on That’s Who I Am, and stay for the stripped-back in­ter­play be­tween the two play­ers on Div­ing Duck Blues. Fin­ish­ing with John Mayer’s Wait­ing On The World To Change, Bon­nie Raitt joins on vo­cals to great ef­fect. Blues or non-blues fans, this is a rich, well pro­duced and re­ward­ing al­bum.
