Middle C Jazz welcomes contemporary jazz duo Michael Lington and Paul Taylor… come join us for two nights of guaranteed funky, upbeat, and soulful sounds given to you by two national and world-renowned saxophone artists.
Paul Taylor, a Denver native, has been captivating thousands of fans, headlining hundreds of shows and being part of exciting all-star tours – most recently doing dates with Peter White and Euge Groove in a lineup affectionately dubbed “Peter, Paul and Euge”. After over ten albums of non-stop hit making, thousands of charismatic performances worldwide and years of setting new standards for the sonic possibilities of contemporary urban jazz, Paul Taylor’s still got his antenna up – ready to pounce on, absorb and be inspired by every vibe he hears that’s fresh, hip and edgy.
“Getting the go-ahead for a new album is always the greatest news because we can toss around ideas and come up with fresh new ways to color around the edges of my core melodic horn vibe, staying true to my stylistic integrity,” says Taylor. “Our goal is always to do something we haven’t tried before, and we have fun experimenting and being adventurous.”- Paul Taylor
Michael Lington, a Denmark Native, has been performing since a very young age starting as a member of the world- renowned Tivoli Boys Guard. His involvement with the orchestra gave him a musical education that was further pursued in college. After finishing college, he began to run his very own recording studio while also touring all throughout Europe. In 1990, Lington made the big move to Los Angeles where he then began to get heavily involved in the contemporary jazz scene. Once settled into his new life in LA, he began to regularly perform with vocalist Bobby Caldwell. Now years later he is a well-known and world-renowned artist that brings new and exciting forms of smooth jazz to life.
Michael talking about his project he did during the pandemic and how he connected w/ Fans:
““Besides prompting me to learn a lot about new technologies, one of the loveliest aspects of the StageIt series is how it has created a special community among longtime and new fans.
