Saxophonist Paul Taylor became interested in music at the age of seven, but it was not until he joined a local high school band that he decided to make it a career. He is perhaps best known for his signature smooth jazz vibe and instantly recognizable sound. There is a common thread of romance on all of his songs that enraptures the listener. A fixture in the smooth jazz community, he has recorded with many artists including pianist Keiko Matsui, guitarist Craig Chaquico, keyboardist Russ Freeman, Steve Oliver, and The Rippingtons. He has teamed up again with producers Barry Eastmond and Rex Rideout for Ladies' Choice
(Peak Records, 2007), which is certain to follow along the lines of his already attained success.
AAJ contributor Katrina-Kasey Wheeler spoke with Taylor about putting a new spin on smooth jazz, working with Matsui and his evolving parallel career as an actor.
