Wes Taylor


 "...Acclaimed guitarist and composer Wes Taylor performs his original fiery Latin guitar repertoire from his albums “Flamenco Flamboyan” and “Esperanza” along with a spicy mix of jazz standards and popular soul tunes. In the tradition of Jose Feliciano, Al Di Meola and other notable guitarist/composers, Wes brings to the stage his pure joy of performing.

Colour!

Life!

A musical experience that leaves you

Breathless..."

Review:            Wes Taylor Quintet     BJC Sunday 2 August 2015
"Wes seems to have found the solution to 'how to get a big sound from a small band' by creating a quintet with Dale Rabic - well-known for his organ and keyboard skills, Dave Galea on bass, Steve Francis on drums, Wes himself on guitar and vocals and just to prove that it's 'in the genes' his son Jacob on percussion. Jacob also played a few numbers on bass and Wes's younger son Samuel demonstrated his prowess when featured with a couple of numbers on violin.
An accomplished and passionate guitarist, Wes also is also highly impressive as a vocalist and his choice of music for this performance showed his penchant for producing interesting arrangements of many well-known and some not-quite-so-familiar songs, with a good feel for Latin numbers. 
From the standard My Romance to Black Orpheus and a pairing of Norwegian Wood with My Favourite Things in the first set, we were treated to the Piazzolla classic Libertango in the second and Spain, written by jazz pianist Chick Corea, in the third. 
Familiar numbers such as One Note Samba and No More Blues also got the Wes Taylor treatment to good effect.
Tonight's performance was once again proof positive that you don't need to go any further than the BJC to see and hear world-class jazz from our own Brisbane musicians.

from the same performance:..

"Wes I LOVED your gig at the Jazz Club (Sunday night) - however, I was disappointed your talented young son played only one tune. Being from a long lie of Scottish and Irish musicians, I appreciated his artistry. My late Mum's first gig was playing - at age Five, violin solo with the QSO as her backing band. :) 
Cheers David...
