For his fifth studio album Martin Taylor, together with Nashville legend Chet Atkins, give a masterclass in virtuosic guitar playing.

Download includes - cover art

Portraits was recorded in Nashville, Hamburg and Scotland and, although primarily a solo album, it provided an opportunity for Martin to work once again with two old friends, producer David Hungate and the legendary guitar picker Chet Atkins.

Atkins guests on several tracks including ‘My Funny Valentine' and The Beatles' ‘Here, There And Everywhere.' Atkins describes Martin Taylor as ‘one of the greatest and most impressive guitar players in the world' stating ‘I just love his playing. This association has been quite an honour for me.'

Taylor also excels in the solo numbers with a highly impressive version of Gershwin's ‘I Got Rhythm' that defies belief. His enviable technique creates a sizzling ‘Ol' Man River' and he applies a gentle melodic touch to 'I Remember Clifford.'

‘Europe's finest jazz guitarist.' Jazz Times

‘Taylor is the finest British guitarist of his generation.' The Times
