Album Notes
Fred Taylor is a drummer, percussionist, composer, and arranger. He has been freelancing with various acts including the jazz singers Laura Hull, Gil \'Bebop\' Benson and Eugene \'Goldie\' Goldston. He is also a regular member of the Pam Purvis-Bob Ackerman group the \'Blue Skies Band\'.

The New Jersey-based Trio features Fred, woodwinds master Bob Ackerman, and double bass whiz Rick Crane. They have two CDs out: Circling (2008) and Live at Cecil's Volume 1 (2009). Both are available on CDBaby.

In addition to drum set, Fred plays congas, bongos, timbales, mallets, and tympani. Fred also plays keyboards, bass guitar, and double bass.

Fred was born in Spokane, Washington in 1954 and has lived in the Seattle area since 1970. He worked extensively nationwide as a leader, sideman, arranger, and producer.

In 1982, his album \"Court of Circe\" attracted international attention on the air and in magazines such as Down Beat and Cadence.

In 2000, Fred and guitarist Gary Rollins re-created their 1970s-era jazz/fusion group \'Inquest\'. Their first album, \"Processional\", was released in December 2006 and is attracting much favorable attention on the Web and in the jazz press.

Since May 2007, he has been playing in the New York/New Jersey area with Pam Purvis and the Blue Skies Band. He has also performed with jazz/r&b group Dreams On Tour, country/rock pianist, singer and writer Hannah Reimann, and Latin/jazz/fusion group Not-Yet.
