Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although still most famous for his 11-year association with Stéphane Grappelli, guitarist Martin Taylor has had a strong solo career for the past two decades. When playing unaccompanied, he can create on the level of a Joe Pass, and he is also a superior group player, too. On Freternity, Taylor is featured in a variety of settings, from solo to a quintet.

Taylor is generous in featuring his sidemen but still emerges as the main star throughout this highly enjoyable release.
