ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the best kept secrets of the experimental music scene in Denmark is undoubtedly the music of Danish born Robin Taylor.

"As for Robin Taylor and his creation as a whole, in my honest opinion, he is undoubtedly one of the most inspired, inventive, and innovative composers of the Progressive Rock movement. If you consider yourself a real connoisseur of progressive music, not to mention ProGfessor, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to enrich your collection with such wonderful albums as those by Taylor's Universe, Robin Taylor and Taylor's Free Universe." -- Vitaly Menshikov, ProgressoR

The music of Robin Taylor is a cross-over of music in almost every thinkable direction, but with a solid foundation in rock and jazz. Though he's playing most of the instruments himself, he's been privileged to include several outstanding capacities in his productions - especially sax-player Karsten Vogel (of Burnin Red Ivanhoe and Secret Oyster fame) and trumpet-player Hugh Steinmetz (voted Danish Jazz Musician of the Year 1966). Since 2000 he has furthermore been the leader of the ensemble Taylor's Free Universe, comprising among others Karsten Vogel and French violinist Pierre Tassone.

Personal influences: King Crimson, The Canterbury Scene, Bill Frisell, Brian Eno, Secret Oyster, Bela Bartok, Charles Ives (to name but a few...)


"While being a highly complex album where, in addition, almost everything is in the state of a constant development, Experimental Health is at the same time just marvelously rich in emotions, and most of the compositions on it have quite a dark, dramatic, and magical feel to them." (Six stars)
-- ProgressoR

"Experimental Health is just one amazing album. I'm very impressed with this stuff."
-- Progressive Ears

"This album is as good as anything by Hatfield and the North or National Health."
-- Dutch Progressive Rock Pages

Great CD!
Superb blend of hummable jazz and experimental guitar work. This CD and Taylor's Universe "Oyster's Apprentice" are hidden gems.
