For the first set Taylor fed off the energy of the capacity crowd, delivering some truly crazed, massively meaty blues-rock nuggets. The second set was calmer, and the audience banter was reduced in favor of a getting-down attention to hard-ass playing. The current combo has a larger-than-life aspect that crumples most other contenders into the dust. Taylor is presently looking towards a fearsome blues-rock strength, almost as a reaction to some of his recent rootsy banjo/mandolin country blues projects. He is a master of both approaches.
