Getting the Blues with Tab Benoit and Taj Mahal
Yesterday a group of four of us, TQ and the F-B's, went down to the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Fest for some good blues, and Tab Benoit delivered his Louisiana funky driven blues to get us rolling. Then the master of 40 years of picking the blues picked up from there and took the crowd on a ride, a Taj Mahal trio ride driven by guitar, piano, and banjo, accompanied by a drummer and a five-string bass. Taj Mahal mentioned in the encore that, although he didn't often get national attention, he was pleased that Jenna Bush's wedding included his song "Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes" as the first dance tune, so he played us that sweet, loving tune to send us home.
