Otis Taylor’s fourteenth album presents a meticulously crafted collection of songs and instrumentals and is only akin to his preceding recordings in that the music again resists easy categorization. Blues and Folk elements are a key part of this, but Taylor’s cutting edge approach also draws on Psychedelic Rock, Jazz and Americana to create a hybrid that he calls Trance Blues.Helping to shape the album are four notable guests including powerhouse guitarist Warren Haynes (best known as a member of The Allman Brothers, The Dead and his own Gov’t Mule), acoustic guitarist Bill Nershi from The String Cheese Incident and singer / songwriter / guitarist Langhorne Slim. Also featured is guitarist Daniel Sproul who has toured with, Eddie Van Halen, Warren Haynes, The Black Crowes and Otis Taylor.”

Otis Taylor – Respect The Dead (2002)

Taylor’s slightly hoarse, husky voice seems risen from the Delta mud. It’s a mighty instrument, whispering and wailing–sometimes, thanks to careful mixing, sounding like a ghost slipping through the cracks of time. And he’s an even better musician-arranger, whose command of slide guitar and effects makes for shivery peals that underpin the drama of his […]

Taylor’s style can best be defined as a cross between roots music and the blues. He has returned with his latest release, My World Is Gone. The focus of this songwriter’s newest album is the former and present trials and tribulations of Native American culture. His blunt tales and searing music explore the disappearing world […]

Otis Taylor – When Negroes Walked the Earth (1997)

Posted by Zorn on December 24, 2012 with No Comments as

Otis Taylor earned acclaim in 2001 when his White African release got picked up for national distribution, but this previous disc could just as easily have been the one to bring him into the spotlight: It was every bit as deep, ambitious, and listenable as White African. Listening to the independently issued When Negroes Walked […]

Otis Taylor – Otis Taylor’s Contraband (2012)

Posted by Zorn on February 25, 2012 with No Comments as

As charged with ritual significance and promise as the basic art form may be, it’s actually hard to find good modern blues records. Cheap production values with too many horns and rote shuffles clutter the landscape, and original voices are disappointingly scarce. But every now and then an album like Otis Taylor’s latest comes along […]
