The James Taylor Quartet
The James Taylor Quartet celebrates its 25th anniversary by releasing a new album, The Template.
Taylor has performed his Hammond sounds around the world since creating his group in the Eighties; although he's experimented with other genres, including soul and rap, it is for his jazz-funk that he and his accompanying trio are best well-known. He is also a fan of tv and film soundtracks, especially those from police and spy series and movies.
On the new album, the foursome have worked with soul singer John Turrell and flautist Gareth Lockrane, amongst others.
