Album information

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, Don't Fret! launched Martin Taylor's remarkable recording career and signature style.

The musicians' highly developed degree of unity achieves a finely-tuned sense of give and take that infuses the music with a perfectly proportioned ebb and flow, utilising trio, duo and solo formats.

Martin Taylor's fingerstyle guitar playing breathes new life into the Jerome Kern standard, 'I'm Old Fashioned', whilst Cole Porter's classic, 'I Love You', benefits from the attention paid to it by Taylor, Green and Ganley.

The foursome deliver contemplative explorations of ‘Blue In Green' and ‘Moonlight In Vermont', a fusion tinted Latin framed 'Mugavero' and a loose airy groove on Oscar Pettiford's seldom heard 'Laverne Walk'. To close, guitar and piano imbue Newton's 'You Know It's True' with all the tenderness this lovely song deserves.
