Review in The Crack magazine, December 2015:

"I could really lose myself in Cusps. An album by Newcastle-based Paul Taylor, it features just him, his piano, and a whole load of sumptuousness. For while a lot of improv leaves me utterly cold (after first leading me down the kind of dark alleys that I really didn’t want to go down) this – which, for want of a better term, is from the more classical end of the jazzy spectrum – is just beautiful. He somehow manages to bottle moods: from sprightly joy to the plaintive and elegiac; from the mournful to the sudden dawning of unexpected glee – and every shifting subtle shade in between – his exemplary playing can really take you there."

The pieces do sound infinitely better when downloaded than when streamed, so the small investment required for this embellishment is infinitely recommended...
