Album Notes
Aside from being the absolute nicest person you'd ever want to meet, Ed Taylor is one of the most experienced and talented guitar players around. You can reel off his accomplishments - Motown session guitarist, opening act for Bachman Turner Overdirive, played more clubs than he can remember since the 60's - but what really gets you about Taylor is a little more basic. For one, the guy smiles all the time - especially when he wrangles amazing licks from his electric guitar. He's humble - even though he could smoke your butt with rootsy jazz-blues notes: he keeps it balanced and in perfect step with the songs. And his voice ... what an honest, open, blue-collar voice - smooth as velvet, with just a hint of Stevie Wonder. The way Taylor wraps his voice around a song, you feel like somebody ought to turn off the lights.

Smoothjazz.com Review

A cool and breezy release!
Former Motown session guitarist Ed Taylor has released a sweet collection of Smooth Jazz tunes that are cool and breezy. The Tacoma, WA resident is well known in the Northwest for his jazz guitar stylings. However, jazz was not always his thing... Taylor began his playing at the young age of 13 - He grew up in Los Angeles and was heavily influenced by George Benson, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. Taylor says, "At the time I didn't know squat about playing guitar, but I could feel it." TAYLOR MADE features some funky grooves ("Seven Inch Drop" and "Funky Stitch"), silky smooth vocals ("Enough For 2" and "Romantic Moments"), Latin-influenced jazz ("Sunset In Mexico"), and Smooth Jazz ("Sexy Threads," "Patterns" and the Smoothjazz.com Radio pick, "Shorts, Socks & Sandals"). The Ed Taylor Band features Taylor on guitar and vocals, Dennis Blackmon on keyboards, Kevin England on trumpet and flugelhorn, Willy Fisher on drums and John Roberts on bass. Put a little Northwest jazz in your music collection and pick up TAYLOR MADE by Ed Taylor. ~ SANDY SHORE
