Taj Mahal On A Life In Music

Jay Blakesberg

Two-time Grammy Award-winning musician, composer and vocalist Taj Mahal is celebrating four decades in American blues and roots with a new album, "Maestro." He joins us in the studio to talk about his musical life and legacy ahead of a run of shows with the Taj Mahal Trio starting tonight at Seattle's Jazz Alley.

Listen to the Taj Mahal Trio's 2011 live performance on Weekday.

Also this hour, we hear about today's "fiscal cliff" meeting at the White House from Jill Jackson of CBS News, and Nick Bond joins us with a weekend weather forecast.
