‘Taylor plays with all his customary brilliance.' The Scotsman
‘A solid, spirited offering that should appeal to both Djangophiles and novices.' Jazz Times
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.
