Philadelphia native, New York-based saxophonist Sam Taylor brings one of his heroes, saxophone legend, Larry McKenna, to the Yardbird Suite on January 24, 2020. Joining them are two top tier New York musicians: Grammy Award winning bassist Paul Sikivie and drummer Pete Van Nostrand.

Taylor’s debut recording “My Future Just Passed” released on Cellar Live in 2015 was hailed by the Toronto Music Report as a “remarkable release”, with All About Jazz describing his playing as “wise beyond his years”.

“Along the Way”, Taylor’s second album on Cellar Live, features Larry McKenna along with a top tier New York rhythm section.

This will be an evening of mainstream jazz at its finest!

“Patiently and lovingly devotes himself to the song…Nothing but rapt attention to the song, to melody, to the way a great artist can make us feel” – Michael Steinman, Jazz

"A traditionalist with a muscular sound...Plays with grace and beautiful deliberation..." - Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
