Bookmark and Share The French press says that John Taylor suffered a cardiac arrest on stage while performing the music from the film Alphaville with the Stephane Kerecki Quartet. The last I heard him was with a trio with hayden Chisholm and Matt Penmann. He had been a professor of jazz piano at Cologne Musikhochschule and influenced many musicians there.

Bookmark and Share Oh man, this is terrible. I’ve been a huge fan since I discovered him with on all of those Erskine trio records from the 90’s. His solo stuff is also pure genius. Check out Phases from 2009. What a loss, I really feel this one.

Bookmark and Share Very sad to hear this; I loved Taylor’s playing. Definitely the trios with Erskine and Danielsson, but also the group Azimuth with Kenny Wheeler and (ex-wife) Norma Winstone ... now, sadly, two thirds of that beautiful trio are gone.
