Album Notes
“We always aim high AND have fun with this music” says Steve.
“playing with his own fire” Rhythm
“The most exciting drummer to hit the London scene for 2 decades” Time Out

Good things Happen is STBB’s first “Studio” recording (..unaccompanied by live audience participation as on the previous CD & DVD releases. Capturing the contemporary swinging, grooving and explosive Steve Taylor Big Band featuring Josie Frater in awesome form musically and sonically.

This album showcases STBB’s straight ahead, no-holds-barred, pulsating and - at times introspective sound. Performing Steve’s self-penned arrangements of Gil Scott-Heron, Zero7, Beady Belle, Eddie Harris and Fat’s Domino compositions, plus contributions from US arrangers Matt Harris & Gordon Goodwin. In short, a trademark Steve Taylor Big Band eXpLoSiOn mix.

Something for everyone? The Big Band genre can be curiously hard to pigeon-hole
and is a sound that moves with the times yet remains organic and fresh, attracting myriad fans of all ages & wonts. STBB’s is an accessible sound indeed and “aims to please” the trained and the untrained ear alike, or, to paraphrase Mozart .. “music that appeals to the intellectuals and the common folk” This music is fun, uplifting, full of flavours and some of the best sounds you’re likely to hear anywhere.

Steve’s drumming is omnipresent, technically supreme, tastefully spacious; Steve drives, caresses, cajoles and powers this music in his inimitable fashion.

Steve Taylor’s recipe for fresh, exhilarating, drum-led big band music features driving swing, funk and Latin flavours, the finest ensemble players and soloists. Weaving seamlessly into the unmistakably vibrant, progressive and uplifting Steve Taylor Big Band sound.

Strap yourself in and take off with Steve Taylor Big Band eXpLoSiOn.
