Otis Taylor Band
Dec 28, 2019
To call Taylor a cutting-edge artist is an understatement. Although his music is based in the blues and folk realm, his meticulously crafted recordings crash the barriers of jazz, rock, funk, Americana, and myriad other genres to create a hybrid that Taylor labels “trance blues”. Taylor does for the blues what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar, taking what everyone assumed was explored to the fullest and busting it wide open in a million new directions.
Part of Taylor’s bag of tricks is his mastery of multiple instruments and his passion for pushing the envelope of what each of them can do. Yet what really matters in the end, as always, is Taylor’s consistent high-quality musicianship and blend of blues, jazz, and bluegrass.
