Taylor Ho Bynum

Taylor Ho Bynum is a performer on cornet and various brass instruments, composer, bandleader, and interdisciplinary collaborator with artists in dance, film, and theater.

Critics have called him “a young brass master and compelling composer” (Jon Garelick, Boston Phoenix), “one of the most exciting figures in jazz’s new power generation” (Steve Dollar,Time Out Chicago), and “one of his generation’s top avant-garde figures” (Phillip Lutz, The New York Times).

In City Arts, David Adler writes “Bynum is a quick-witted and virtuosic player, steeped in the flutters, growls and extended techniques associated with the late Bill Dixon, the tunefulness of Don Cherry and bluesy humor of Lester Bowie”; in the Guardian (UK) John Fordam describes his playing as “splicing the slurs and bluesy elisions of the earliest jazz brass players into the spiky phrasing and rhythm- pattern conundrums of contemporary music.”
