PAUL TAYLOR

Saxophone

Paul Taylor took up the saxophone at the age of seven. Though the Denver native has lived and worked primarily in Las Vegas since graduating as a music performance major from University of Nevada, the proximity of his adopted hometown to Los Angeles gave him many opportunities to vibe with R&B and contemporary jazz producers and artists. He shared stage with artists like Jeff Lorber and The Rippingtons, just to name a few, and has toured and recorded with Keiko Matsui for two years. Later he was also part of two big summer tours: Gentlemen of the Night (with Marion Meadows and Warren Hill) and Sax and the City (with Meadows and Vincent Ingala). Paul has become one of the genre’s most popular live attractions delivering charismatic performances as a solo artist. His CD “Ladies’ Choice” marked his first ever #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz. “Burnin’”, the title track from his 2009 album, “Push To Start” from “Prime Time” and “Supernova” from “Tenacity” hit the pole position on the Smooth Jazz Songs chart. The albums itself reached the Top Ten on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart.
