Scott Ellison: Elevator Man

Read "Elevator Man" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Tulsa, Oklahoma-native Scott Ellison looks like an accountant (not unlike fellow blues musician George Taylor), sings a bit like a dustbowl Howlin' Wolf and plays guitar like Old Scratch from the corner of Highways 49 and 61. Dusty Oklahoma is the home of many fine musicians not the least of whom include Leon Russell, J.J. Cale, ...

George Taylor: TroubleTown

Read "TroubleTown" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

On George Taylor's second recording, Rain or Shine (Self Produced, 2014), the guitarist looked oddly like a square accountant. On his first recording, TroubleTown he looks like Texas surfer cleaned up in a blue blazer. On both recordings, Taylor plays some of the freshest throw-back Americana being played. Touted as a “Blues musician," and, while he ...

George Taylor: Rain or Shine

Read "Rain or Shine" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Observation One. George Taylor looks like the cross between a small-town pharmacist and a junior account. Observation Two. Taylor is touted as a blues musician who toured the Mississippi River Delta in search of that singular blues inspiration. It is funny that his resulting recording Rain or Shine should sound as if born of Jimmie Rodgers ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
