Gypsy Journey

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Veteran jazz guitarist Martin Taylor is steeped in many jazz styles, especially the Gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt, which he obviously knew to be able to play with Reinhardt's partner, violinist St?phane Grappelli. Though the title of the CD may suggest that this another typical Reinhardt tribute, it has a different twist. First of all, Taylor is playing electric guitar throughout the session, while he uses a standard jazz rhythm section, consisting of pianist Jermaine Landsberger, bassist Davide Petrocca, and drummer Scotty Gottwald.

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Veteran jazz guitarist Martin Taylor is steeped in many jazz styles, especially the Gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt, which he obviously knew to be able to play with Reinhardt's partner, violinist St├ęphane Grappelli. Though the title of the CD may suggest that this another typical Reinhardt tribute, it has a different twist. First of all, Taylor is playing electric guitar throughout the session, while he uses a standard jazz rhythm section, consisting of pianist Jermaine Landsberger, bassist Davide Petrocca, and drummer Scotty Gottwald. The guitarist's originals range from the Gypsy swing-flavored "Chez Fernand" to the pretty ballad "True" and the cooking bop vehicle "Nigoloswing," the latter two being very modern in flavor. Landsberger also contributed a pair of pieces, including the dramatic "Hungaria" and the swinging "Leticia," with the composer taking a prominent role. Taylor has fun with mandolinist David Grisman's "Tipsy Gypsy" written by Grisman to play with Grappelli for the soundtrack to the film King of the Gypsies, playing it as a lively duet with Petrocca. Taylor delivers a subtle performance of Reinhardt's famous composition "Manoir de Mes Reves" to wrap up this delightful CD.
