Martin Taylor MBE / Press

“An embrace of the energetic genius of Reinhardt, Spirit of Django sheds new light on a rich musical lineage.”

“Now, I could write everything I know about gypsy jazz on the head of an ultra small pin head, and still have room to transcribe Lord Of The Rings, but I do recognise talent when it comes out of my headphones. And this reeks of it. It's been 15 years since the last outing for Spirit Of Django, and it certainly sounds as though Mr Taylor is relishing the return, as he works his way through a serious of sparkling tunes.”

“If you like Gypsy Jazz then this is definitely an album worth checking out, Martin is a very talented musician who makes Django style soloing sound effortless, we all know it is incredibly difficult even with 4 fingers!”

“Martin Taylor, a guitar virtuoso if ever there was one. The music is beguiling. Taylor, with his almost superhuman fluency, weaves scraps of melody into endlessly varied patterns.”
