Martin Taylor combines his strong, engaging stage presence with his signature style on this spirited live album recorded during his 1997 British tour.
Download includes - cover art

Gypsy finds Martin Taylor and his Spirit of Django band dazzling audiences with a combination of virtuosity, emotion and humor.

Together Taylor and the band re-work compositions by Django Reinhardt and tracks the late Gypsy guitarist made famous, such as ‘Chicago' and ‘Sweet Sue Just You'. ‘The Tipsy Gypsy' provides the centrepiece for the engaging opening medley, written by Django collaborator and Bluegrass mandolinist, David Grisman. Taylor has written for many respected jazz performers and for TV and film; the mellow but upbeat ‘Chez Fernand' is one of seven original tracks he has contributed to Gypsy.

Taylor's acoustic guitar is complemented by strong soloists such as accordion player Jack Emblow and saxophonist Dave O'Higgins.
 

‘Taylor plays with all his customary brilliance.' The Scotsman

‘A solid, spirited offering that should appeal to both Djangophiles and novices.' Jazz Times


Booklet notes:

These recordings are dedicated to Betsy White - a Scottish gypsy whose stories about the travelling life have been a great source of inspiration and rediscovery for me and my family.

In 1996 I took my group ‘Spirit of Django' on a 33 date concert tour of Britain. These recordings were made during that tour.

I would like to thank all the tremendous audiences we had up and down the country for their support and for making that tour a real highlight in my career.

I would like to thank all the musicians for their outstanding musical talents, and the super-human socialising skills they all displayed.

Special thanks to our sound engineer Dave Bellwood for recording the concerts and working miracles every night with different sound systems and hall acoustics, and my son James for organizing us older - but not necessarily wiser - members of the orchestra. © Martin Taylor
