Taylor is a 29-year old saxophone player originally from Narmata, BC (just outside Penticton, in the Okanagan), currently residing in Toronto. He is a graduate of the Jazz Performance Program at the University of Toronto.
The Cook Book, Taylor’s latest release, is the culmination of his original compositions that he has arranged for a variety of ensemble configurations. The CD, produced by Rolling Stones saxophonist Tim Ries, features 20 of Toronto’s finest young musicians as well as multi-Juno award winner Mike Murley.
Taylor is active both as a performer and educator. He teaches private group and one-on-one
lessons for saxophone, clarinet and composition, as well as clinics and master classes covering a
wide range of jazz and music related topics.
