Discovered by Keiko Matsui, saxophonist Paul Taylor has proven to be a capable heir to the chilled-sax tradition of Dave Sanborn and Kirk Whalum. This time around, it's LADIES CHOICE, and Taylor has opted for a gregarious mix of smooth jazz and creamy R&B that's alternately mellow and danceable. Taylor's fluid, melodic approach meshes beautifully with the guest female voices of Regina Belle, Latoya London, Terry Dexter, and Lauren Evans.
