4.0 out of 5 stars Good in His Own Way 22 Aug. 2003
By J. G. Gollin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
References to Taylor's ranking "way up there with Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and the like" and having "a sound that would echo in Birdland NYC" might be somewhat of a reach.
I loved Sam (The Man). Each school night, I'd listen to the Alan Freed Rock 'n Roll show on my old Philco and hang in there through all the vocals, doo wop and novelty numbers til the top of the hour when Freed would play an instrumental - usually by Taylor, Red Prysock, Rusty Bryant, Gator Jackson, Bill Doggett, Al Sears, Mickey Guitar Baker or maybe Hal "Cornbread" Singer.
Taylor's signature tune was "Cloudburst" - he was featured tenor player for a group John Hendricks claims was led by Leroy Kirkland under the pseudonym, Claude Cloud (& the Thunderclaps). Name of the LP was "Let's Get Cat-Static." Lambert Hendricks and Ross did the cover and made Cloudburst a popular hit.
I loved Sam (The Man) for his energy, drive, lyricism and ability to hit high notes on his axe with ease - without squeaking or squealing.
But creatively note for note - he wasn't in the same league musically as Miles or Bird.
And the closest Sam (The Man)might have gotten musically to Birdland might have been when I saw Jimmy Forrest play there (with Red Garland, Lee Morgan, Wilbur Ware and Philly Joe) and - much to his embarrassment - they made him play "Night Train." No, it's highly unlikely that you'd hear Oo Wee, High Winds or even Cloudburst played at Birdland (unless LHR was the headliner. Then you might get Cloudburst by default). But I loved them all, and I loved Sam (The Man).

5.0 out of 5 stars SAM IS ABSOLUTELY THE MAN 8 Feb. 2014
By salubriousjazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sam The Man Taylor was a criminally underrated genius. Although these truly rocking and marvelously rambunctious tunes are from his early R&B period, he was far more than an R&B and mood music player. In truth, he was a phenomenally gifted Jazz Musician. Sam possessed a remarkably striking stunning tone and feel that was totally unique. He produced a huge deep muscular resonant sound that struck the very core of your being. Taylor could caress a ballad as if it were a sensitively sensuous, elegantly refined tender woman and could turn the blues into a bottomless pit of oceans of rich lush royal hues of majestic purples.

This man had an uncanny ability to bend and manipulate the shape of a note into elongated shimmering swirls of pleasure that turned into powerful sexual thrusts of ecstasy. He made you feel as if the horn was actually making love to you! A hugely gifted accompanist, on Gloria Lynne's first album "Miss Gloria Lynne" he played a solo that was so remarkable and visual, it was unmatched anywhere in Jazz history. From the first note he created a stealthily powerful, creeping midnight pitch-black panther, entering into the environment with a presence so powerfully ominous it was as if it exploded into the room ! You actually watched this flawless muscular creature stalking the room with it's deep dark piercing eyes as it slowly paced and menacingly growled with a fearless roar as it exited the room! Good Heavens what an experience. It actually bought about a climatic episode. This is a different kind of saxophone playing, this is really SEXOPHONE! Many were influenced by the brilliant Sam The Man Taylor among them the great Georgie Auld and a whole boat load of others. However none were like him, the man was a genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars sam is definitely the man 9 Jun. 2011
By bluesback - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sam was always right in the pocket. No doubt he's big time and deserves to be as recognized in R&B as Bird/Trane/Miles are in jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth 20 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sam "The Man" Taylor is an artist who ranks way up there with Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and the like. His smooth melodies and beats will transcend you to a sound that would echo in Birdland NYC. He surely was "The Man"
