Melvin Taylor & The Slack Band :: Live at Rosa's Lounge

"One of the most exhilarating blues guitarists to emerge in the past decade is more a blues innovator than a purist, mixing jazz chords and rock influences into his tapestry of electric blues." -Rolling Stone Magazine

"A volcanic guitarist the sort of virtuosity that drags an audience into a world of risks and chances and excitement." -The New York Times

"Melvin Taylor isn't just a some unbelievable long-esteemed player of truly formidable skill but rather a treasury that proves beyond doubt that Melvin Taylor needs to be placed within the museum of the guitar greats: Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Chet Atkins, Frank Zappa, Earl Klugh, Jim Hall, Leo Kottke, Robert Fripp, Grant Green, Pat Metheny, all of 'em, regardless of style and genre." -Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange about "Beyond the Burning Guitar"
