About Taylor Haskins
In his 20 years as a working musician, Haskins has recorded 5 albums as a leader and last year alone played on recordings by Nels Cline, Jamie Baum, Alan Ferber, Joel Harrison & JC Sanford. A unique and singular voice on his instrument, Taylor is also the lead trumpeter for Dave Holland’s Grammy™-winning Big Band and a long time member of Guillermo Klein’s legendary group ‘Los Guachos’.
“Mr. Haskins works his horn as if he was creating fantastic tapestries that tell timeless stories and are awash with gorgeous colors that are both warm and cool and, above all, absolutely beguiling. Mr. Haskins also plays this ethereal music with flawlessness and astounding fluidity.” (Taylor Haskins: Fuzzy Logic review by Jazz Da Gama)
