Performing all over England, the Caroline Taylor Quintet has gained a national reputation as a tight, swinging and energetic band. Led by drummer Caroline Taylor, the band contains some of Englans most exciting talent. They are all Guildhall alumni and though well versed in the Jazz tradition, they have a fresh and individual approach to the music.
Live performances centre around Ms. Taylor's original compositions and those of Horace Silver. The compositions mix distinct grooves to dynamic effect; mellow Afro/Latin grooves contrasting dramatically with up tempo hard bop rhythms.
