Taylor, Matthew Evan
New Amsterdam Records, 2021, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: On The Unheard Mixtape 5, Taylor opens on soprano, moving to alto then flute before reversing the order in five Improvisations. He gives us a sea of saxophones that can be peaceful, enticing, mysterious and/or eerie. Taylor reminds us of the saxophonist in the tunnel exit at Chicago O’Hare (airport) on the way to the trains and parking lot. He’s extracting the most from is instruments and a naked, lengthy display. Show him some love.
