Double LP

Includes new Taj Mahal composition "Waiting For My Papa To Come Home"

Recorded live in Tulsa at the studio for the great Leon Russell

"It was a great opportunity to capture this particular sextet, and also pay tribute to Leon Russell and all that he did, and my friendship with him, at one of the premier studios on planet Earth." — Taj Mahal

With his latest release, Swingin' Live at the Church in Tulsa, Taj Mahal adds to his legendary legacy with an extraordinary set recorded at the Tulsa studio best known as the home base of the late, great Leon Russell. The ten songs reach across multiple genres that he has explored in his incomparable career, and feature his long-time quartet-bassist Bill Rich, drummer Kester Smith, and guitarist/Hawaiian lap steel player Bobby Ingano-augmented by dobro player Rob Ickes and guitarist and vocalist Trey Hensley.

In a career spanning seven decades and almost 50 albums, Taj Mahal has not only helped popularize and reshape the scope of the blues, but he has also personified the concept of "World Music" since years before the phrase even existed.

From a base of traditional country blues, Taj has explored and incorporated reggae, Latin, R&B, Cajun, Caribbean, gospel, West African, jazz, calypso, Hawaiian slack-key, and countless other musical styles into his astonishing body of work.
