CD/LP/Track Review

More articles about Jamie Taylor
“Someone New Suite and Three Colours: Blues Suite show off starkly contrasting soundscapes. The former has a clear indebtedness to the likes of Paul Motian, with elements of 1970s fusion and prog, while the latter offers an alternative perspective on the blues legacy, taking in elements of swing, bop, and funk.

“Jamie Taylor’s edgy guitar burns through” John Fordham, The Guardian
