Taylor Haskins

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.”

”...Mr. Haskins works his horn as if he was creating fantastic tapestries that tall timeless stories and are awash with gorgeous colours that are both warm and cool and, above all, absolutely beguiling. Mr. Haskins also plays this ethereal music with flawlessness and astounding fluidity. - See more at: http://jazzdagama.com/reviews/cds/taylor-haskins-fuzzy- logic/#sthash.NamxdgjY.dpuf”

“There’s nothing fuzzy about Haskins’ logic on this superb and special album.” - Nick Bewsey's April Jazz picks for Icon Magazine
