MUSICIAN Born:

Dylan Taylor

My first instrument was cello, then electric bass. When I found Jazz the upright bass found me. I have spent most of my life in Philadelphia except for a few years studying with John Patittucci in New York. Also studied with Buster Williams, Dennis Sandole and Al Stauffer. Played for many years and recorded with Ken Ulansey and Heath Allen, also with the Tom Lawton trio at the four seasons Hotel and Tony Williams Quartet at the Ritz Carlton. Was a long time member of Bobby Zankel's big band, made two records with them and a trio record with Edgar Bateman. I have also recorded with Larry Coryell and Mike Clark, Butch Ballard and Sam Dockery, Khan Jamal, and Kelly Meashey among others.
