Album Notes
From Downbeat Magazine's June 2007 Feature "25 Trumpets for the Future":

Taylor Haskins has played in many of the large ensembles that matter, including the Dave Holland Big Band, Guillermo Klein's Los Guachos and the Maria Schneider Orchestra. "Those are three of my main influences composition-wise," he said. "In these groups, playing in unison with other musicians is one of the purest things you can do with a wind instrument." Haskins, 35, has also toured extensively with the explosive road band of Richard Bona. Originally from New Hampshire, where he grew up playing classical music, Haskins came to New YOrk to study with Lew Soloff at the Manhattan School of Music. He's gone on to forge alliance with such promising fellow bandleaders as Andrew Rathbun and Pablo Ablanedo. His two albums, Wake Up Call (2002) and Metaview (2006) reveal a probing, adroit lyricism and a gift for complex and imaginative composition. - David R. Adler

Trumpeter Taylor Haskins' sophomore release under his name, which was recorded in December of 2004 but came out only two years later, proves to be a cohesive and dynamic blend of diverse impressions manifesting in subtly layered compositions, melody lines mutating over the course of the tunes, horn build-ups, effective tempo shifts, etc. The listener is rewarded with spirited performance from everyone involved.
Guitarist Adam Rogers does a fine job at providing chordal accompaniment and jabs, curt motifs, and his impeccably fluid, at time edgy, delineations (#1, 4-5, 10). Saxophonist Andrew Rathbun (tenor - solo #2-3, 6-7, 11 and soprano - #5, 8) is a new discovery, whose timbre and phrasing remotely reminds me sometimes those of the late great Bob Berg and, to a lesser degree, Joe Lovano. Mark Ferber's energetic beats are perfect companions to deservedly sought-after Kiwi double bassist, Matt Penman (solo – intro #1, 4, 11) plucking and, very occasionally, strumming strings with gusto, creating fat sound vaguely reminiscent that of Christian McBride.

But it is Haskins who is chiefly responsible for conjuring moods: the breezy opener 'biorhythm' is followed by the restless, groove-driven #2 'patience', while #3 'interbeing' imparts a mild sense of mysteriousness, as if treading in some forbidden garden. In similar vein, we have the darkly lyrical #4 'moodring', as well as #7 'cranes' of melancholic desolation and the bittersweat #10 'Zuma'. Of the more vibrant kind there are the festive #5 'timespeed', with some electronica and dance floor vibe; the loosely structured #6 'trance dance'; the swinging #9 'nyah' where the bandleader also plays organ and allows space for a drum solo; the driving #8 'call me tomorrow' inducing a somewhat demanding urgency; and finally the busybodily comic #11 'itty bitty ditty'. The sole quibble I have is that the miniatures #7-9 could have been longer. Total time: 56.48 min. Probably it's worth to round up the trumpeter's latest, genre-bender album called "Recombination" (2011, Nineteen-Eight).
