Martin Taylor: Nitelife by Jim Santella, published on August 1, 2001. Martin Taylor: Nitelife. After touring and recording with Stéphane Grappelli throughout the 1980s, and then recording seven superior, straight-ahead albums in the 1990s for the Linn label, Martin Taylor has made a radical change of direction. For his Columbia Records debut, the guitarist teams with saxophonist Kirk Whalum, adds programmed accompaniments to the musical arrangements, and floats repetitious smooth jazz melodies around the recording studio
Written-By – Kirk Whalum, Martin Taylor. Written-By – Martin Taylor.
Produced by Steve Buckingham and Kirk Whalum, Nitelife is one of Taylor 's more commercial efforts. Jazz is often blended with pop and R&B, and much of the CD is obviously aimed at the NAC/smooth jazz market. But Nitelife isn't without integrity. Although uneven and inconsistent - there are a few throwaways here and there - the album has more plusses than minuses.
