Ed Taylor – It’s Complicated

Smooth jazz is tailor made to uplift the lives of everyday people in this long-awaited offering from jazz guitarist, Ed Taylor. Several pieces have already been pegged as sophisticated, crowd pleasing cuts by industry insiders.

Aside from being the absolute nicest person you’d ever want to meet, Ed Taylor is one of the most experienced and talented guitar players around. You can reel off his accomplishments – Motown session guitarist, opening act for Bachman Turner Overdirive, played more clubs than he can remember since the 60’s – but what really gets you about Taylor is a little more basic.

For one, the guy smiles all the time – especially when he wrangles amazing licks from his electric guitar. He’s humble – even though he could smoke your butt with rootsy jazz-blues notes: he keeps it balanced and in perfect step with the songs. And his voice … what an honest, open, blue-collar voice – smooth as velvet, with just a hint of Stevie Wonder. The way Taylor wraps his voice around a song, you feel like somebody ought to turn off the lights.
