Saxophonist Dennis Taylor is best known in blues circles for his work on the road and in the recording studio with Delbert McClinton, Buckwheat Zydeco, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Earl Gaines, Duke Robillard, and others. Dennis also worked with Michelle Shocked and Todd Snider.

Taylor passed away at age 56 of a heart attack while on tour with Delbert McClinton.

In addition to his live performances, Dennis also authored the aclaimed instructional books Blues Saxophone: An In-Depth Look At The Styles Of The Masters, Jazz Saxophone, and Amazing Phrasing.

A tasteful, soulful player with a great sense of tradition, Dennis went above and beyond the call of duty by providing a heartfelt and informed sound each time he picked up his sax.
