Paul Taylor

Part of Gateshead Jazz 2020

Paul Taylor is an accomplished pianist and keyboard player specialising in improvisation. The music is evocative, alluring and unique; combining unusual harmonies and sonorities with an original and fluid technique.

He is emerging as one of the most consistently interesting and innovative solo pianists in recent years, eschewing the conventional cliches associated with jazz improvisation in favour of an unorthodox, harmonically complex and often compellingly beautiful musical language that is often inspired by the classical tradition. Nonetheless, his playing also encapsulates the restless capacity for invention that is a cornerstone of jazz.

Paul Taylor is a northern line R6 ambassador artist supported by Jazz North using public funding from Arts Council England.

“A rare phenomenon”: International Piano Magazine, Nov/Dec 2016 edition
