About Paul Taylor
Paul Taylor is an American contemporary jazz alto and soprano saxophonist. His reedy tone and warm, bright sound frame dynamic, danceable grooves and intricate pop shot through with electronica. He has been leading his own dates since 1995's On the Horn. He registered major chart hits with 2000's Undercover and 2007's crossover smash Ladies Choice. Taylor's skillful collaborations with vocalists including LaToya London, Peabo Bryson, and Maxi Priest have resulted in hits. 2014's Tenacity also crossed over thanks to the single "Supernova" (feat. Jonathan Fritzen). 2021's And Now This was constructed from digital files exchanged between Taylor and longtime producer Dino Esposito during the pandemic with the goal of creating a beat-conscious set of club tracks. The latter included "Ride It," sung by All-4-One vocalist Jamie Jones.
