Blistering Guitar With Soul

The guitar shines like a polished motorcycle ready to impress spectators on a Saturday morning. Taylor's guitar is smooth with his jazzy technique and the tone is so perfect. His vocals fit the style so well. What a great combination for blues guitar. The trio is solid and funky/soulful. This is a master at work showing the rest of us what it means to be a craftsman. Playing SRV material is not easy to do. Critics will nail you to the wall for flaws. Melvin has taken the step beyond copying material and has given it his own spin. Truly what the blues and jazz are all about. The material is strong on it's own as a result. Excellent.

He's The Man

I've seen plenty of good guitar players before.....BB King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Eric Johnson, Johnny Lang...and Melvin Taylor is definitely in that class of player....

I saw him play live in New York and he was doing things I've never seen anyone else do...

He truly is an amazing Blues guitar player.

Masterful Technique

I've been studying blues guitar for a decade and Melvin Taylor incorporates the fundamentals while elevating his technique to the highest level. You're not just going to hear the minor scale here, but the whole collection of voicings that make great blues what it is. I wish I could sit jam with him and soak up as much knowledge as I could. I highly recommend.
