While the two have known and influenced each other for decades, and Taj played a key role in Keb’s first record deal, TajMo marks the first proper collaboration between Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’. The album was self-produced by the duo and was recorded by Zach Allen, John Caldwell and Casey Wasner at Nashville’s Stu Stu Studio, mixed by Ross Hogarth, and mastered by Richard Dodd. The 11-song set includes covers of John Mayer and The Who, as well as 6 original songs.
