Jonathan Taylor Quartet

Featuring Jaribu Shahid on Bass, Tim Haldeman on Tenor Saxophone & Ian Finkelstein on piano

Jonathan Taylor is a drummer and composer based in Detroit. An avid collaborator, he co-leads a number of projects, including the art rock quartet saajtak, electro-acoustic duo Says Things, and Teiku, which reimagines his family's ancestral passover melodies in a Creative Music context. His original music, described as "A balance between form and freedom" and "music for both the head and heart," by All About Jazz, was featured at Edgefest in a modular suite of Taylor's graphic scores. He has performed with such luminaries of Black American Music as Wadada Leo Smith, Tomeka Reid, John Lindberg, Jaribu Shahid, and Michael Formanek, and maintains study in North Indian Classical Music. He will be joined by saxophonist Tim Haldeman and the great Jaribu Shahid on bass, and Ian Finkelstein on piano.
