He had flown back that morning from the States but Martin Taylor was bright and enthusiastic about the new album. ‘We recorded it in LA and I've just finished the mixing in Nashville. ltwill probably be called Cherokee Ride, after a piece I wrote, and it's aimed at a younger audience. Really good music— the trumpet player is from the Crusaders and the percussionist from Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson. John Pattatucci plays bass in Chick Corea's band, Mike Wariord is the tenor player and Ralph Humphries on drums. I hope to tourthe band, orone with more or less the same line-up, when the album comes out.’

I love what I heard . . . great jazz guitar.’

Martin Taylor plays Glasgow (Gillespie’s, 20 Sept) in a solo concert, usually three sets starting with some standards, then more modern and unusual numbers and even throwing in a folk song ortwo as a starting point for complex improvisations, playing all the lines at once but always with more depth than flashy brilliance. He is lulsome in his praise oi the new-look Gillespie's with it's more modern, adventurous booking policy and thinks ‘Elliot Meadows is doing a marvellous iob,’ and laughs, ‘I hope they can keep paying his lee.‘ (Norman Chalmers)
