Sam The Man Taylor
Tenor Sax with Orchestra & Chorus
Decca DL 74302
From the back cover: Kentucky-born Sam Taylor went to school in Gary, Indiana, where he was taught to play the clarinet. It was at Alabama State Teachers College that he learned how to play the alto and tenor sax. The tenor became his favorite and specialty instrument. From amateur to professional was a quick jump with jobs with the Cab Calloway and Cootie Williams orchestras. Currently he is free-lancing, appearing as a side man soloist and sometimes leader in TV – radio – recordings – night clubs and theaters.
From Billboard - August 11, 1962: Smooth and often pretty, breathy, blowing by Sam Taylor on tenor, helps make this routine background music set stand out above the normal run.
