Sax and the City featuring Marion Meadows and Jazz icon Paul Taylor with their smooth contemporary Jazz sound perform on July 23.
Smooth Jazz-styled soprano saxophonist Meadows played with numerous artists and musicians and became a well-known sideman in his own right. Meadows recorded or performed over the years with Brook Benton, Eartha Kitt, Phyllis Hyman, Jean Carne, The Temptations, Michael Bolton, and Angela Bofill.
Paul Taylor has been one of the most popular and innovative saxophonists and performers over the past decade and a half. Taylor has been on one of the most successful runs of his 15 year recording career, scoring his first number one hit ever on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart with “Ladies’ Choice” and reaching the top of airplay charts with the title track from Burnin’. Taylor’s mix of funk and silk, groove heavy chops on soprano, alto and tenor, dynamic stage presence and catchy melodies were a natural fit for the smooth Jazz genre.
