Born: November 7, 1971 Primary Instrument: Trumpet
Taylor Haskins is being hailed as one of the most original new voices on the trumpet today. In a recent feature, Downbeat magazine declared him one of '25 Trumpets for the Future', stating that Taylor displays a probing, adroit lyricism and a gift for complex, imaginative composition. As a sideman, Taylor won a Grammy award working with Dave Holland, and he also lends his sound to such artists as Richard Bona, Guillermo Klein, Jamie Baum, and Andrew Rathbun, amongst many others. In 2002 Taylor released his debut recording entitled “Wake Up Call” on the Barcelona-based Fresh Sound/New Talent label. AllAboutJazz.com called it an “impressive debut, wherein traditional forms are discarded and the beauty of new forms revealed.” In July of 2007 Taylor released his second CD on Fresh Sound, entitled “Metaview”. Cadence magazine called it an affair of originality and dramatic flair...a highly recommended album by an original voice....
