WASHINGTON POST–“Imaginatively orchestrated… multi-faceted… darting lyricism, and occasionally pensive moods, Taylor makes the grade with his deft touch and improvisatory skills.”

ESQUIRE MAGAZINE–”As to the quality of the music and the professionalism, this production is far superior over the numerous recordings issued by the major record companies.”

“You both blend well together and have an amazing sense of creating comfort for listeners. You play with no effort like you could do it in your sleep.  Great work!…” Audience Member
