Mark Taylor’s work with Max Roach … Video

22.05. – Happy Birthday !!! Mark Taylor’s work with Max Roach, Henry Threadgill and Muhal Richard Abrams, among many others, established his reputation as a go-to French Hornist in the jazz and improvised music communities.

Putting aside the Horn for the composer’s pen, Taylor’s newest work continues the spirit that won him recognition from legendary artist Max Roach, who said, “there is no one dealing with the music the way Mark is.”

Taylor, a native of Chattanooga, TN, has been commissioned to compose for theatre, dance, and the concert stage. He placed two songs in the Dollface Productions independent feature film “The Girl” and scored the documentaries “9/11 Fear In Silence” for JadeFilms and Camille Billops’ “A String of Pearls”. He has written transcriptions of the work of seminal jazz bandleader James Reese Europe’s “Hellfighters” military band for the Brooklyn Repertory Ensemble and composed a multi-movement orchestral work commissioned by Anthony Braxton’s Tri-Centric Foundation and premiered by the Tri-Centric Orchestra in New York City in the Fall of 2013.

Mark has also released four CDs of all original material, QuietLand, Circle Squared, At What Age and Live At The Freight (co- led with composer/saxophonist Jessica Jones).
