With the success of projects like Azimuth and recent recordings on ECM with the likes of Peter Erskine and Jan Garbarek it’s not hard to justify the statement that John Taylor was one of the worlds finest musicians. ‘Pause…’ was his first ever LP as leader and originally appeared on the Turtle label in 1971 produced by John Surman. It captures an artist at the outset of his musical explorations and certainly stands the test of time. With an all star British line up the CD confirms what a talent he was even then, as the recording has become a favourite of many modern jazz aficionados and a must for all collectors.
