Why don't we hear Taj Mahal's name on the news and TMZ and the daily news every day? Well, let's just google that question right now. But in the meantime, I must share this gem I found on my own harddrive. I am honored to say that I had the privilege of meeting Taj Mahal in Kansas City, Missouri in 1975 at the Broadway out front afterwards in his RV, where he graciously offered us some greens he had cooked himself. Awesome man, awesome experience, and thank you for the music, #TajMajal.

The simple title of this video "michelle singing songs" is appropriate and makes me hopeful that some new mucic might be forthcoming. Being a long-time fan of Michelle Shaprow, her song came up in rotation from my library. Yes, now I get inspiration from my own library, LOL.
Granny (me) does not remember how I first came to know Michelle's music, but when I found Michelle on Myspace, she was so personable. I even tried to set her up with my son who was single at the time. Michelle was so nice to me that she personally sent songs for inclusion on my station, "Funk Sanctum Radio" by djGoddessa. And now, even though I am retired from streaming, I still receive updates on my favorite musicians through my YouTube subscription. Actually, you should subscribe to my YouTube channel: Grangoddessa on YouTube.
