I met the Baker family about 7 years ago at IBMA. I became a fan of Taylors and I was just starting lessons on the mandolin. He was very accomplished then at a young age, I was impressed. I'll be sure to get his new CD. Every one is sure to be glad they purchased his CD.
It's been a long time , "HEY" Taylor.

Taylor is a fine young man, and extremely versified on the mandolin.
This CD is like a mandolin music journey around the world.
Taylor is also on a few cuts of Frank Wakefields lastest CD

I am just stunned at the artistic skill on this CD. Taylor and Danny are out in that orbit that not many get to travel in. I mean I have heard a lot of mandolin in the last 5 or 10 years and this way up there with the best. I mean he plays like 6 different styles like a master and can improvise. Add Danny Knicely that! KA-BOMB! ... ....


I am on the floor.
