Minas - Tribute to Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66

WORLD CAFE LIVE - The Lounge (Upstairs) Saturday December 18, 2021 8:30 pm Tribute to Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 Minas Quintet (John Swana, Andrew Neu, Tom Cohen, Dylan Taylor) Reservations Highly Recommended

Sergio Mendes turned 80 this year! He’s had an outstanding career as a top-selling artist and record producer, and most acclaimed living Brazilian musician outside of Brazil. PBS honored him with a special program aired early this summer, watched by millions of viewers. Sergio Mendes broke many barriers - with many of his top 40 hits in Portuguese. “Brasil 66”, featuring singer Lani Hall, packed large venues and exposed a whole new generation to Bossa Nova and Brazilian Jazz. Sergio and and his band are still performing and touring and continues to inspire!

Cadence Magazine 4/2018 Review of One In Mind 

It’s sad to be engaging this music after Coryell’s passing, but nice to check in with his playing regardless of circumstance. The bustling, fulsome groove on “The One or the Nine” makes for a rousing start. There’s strongly motivic playing at the heart of things, and the leader Taylor sounds fantastic in the thick of it all. Coryell’s playing suggests he’s fallen back in love with Grant Green, with a much more pared down phraseology than many associate with him. “Loft Funk” sounds especially dialed in, and…

WTJU Richmond 

Dylan Taylor – One In Mind (BluJazz): Bassist/cellist Dylan Taylor has had a streak of very good luck over the years: A member of a local jazz band that backed up visiting players, he met and played with guitarist Larry Coryell. He later befriended and played with drummer Mike Clark. In 2015, the friends were set up to do a live performance which was wiped out by a heavy snowstorm, but also stranded the players in the performance hall. While stranded, they took advantage by playing AND recording their…

Chip Stern - One In Mind review 

“… last year’s dramatic interplay with Dylan Taylor on the master bassist’s ONE IN MIND, which featured a remarkable degree of conversational funk and swing between Larry and the innovative drummer Mike Clark, an ideal pairing I was most certainly looking forward to hearing a great deal more of in the near future, Larry and Mike being two of my fave musicians and people, but then, we are all playing with the house’s money, are we not. It wasn’t meant to be. Chip Stern, http://radiofreechip.com/

Sam Dockery, Jazz Pianist.   

Just learned of the passing of Sam Dockery, Jazz Pianist, from this world. I am proud to say I played and recorded with Sam and drummer Butch Ballard on what was probably their last recording; Butch's 2007  record Mozaic.  I've been meaning to put the recording up on this site. I will do it now.
