Product Notes

Sweeter for the Struggle is more than just another jazz release in 2013. Dylan Taylor sees the album, and the larger dialogue of jazz in our modern times, as hope for the new world. People from all backgrounds can come together and take part in this tradition. Much like a lotus flower emerges from the mud, jazz has emerged from oppressive and turbulent times to be a music that is of pure beauty. Multiple genres weave in and out of the record, showing the diversity of Taylor's tastes, all held together with his identifiable bass stylings and perpetual groove. The album will take you through turns of Afro-Cuban, fusion, straight ahead, blues, avant-garde, and more. Masterful talents, the likes of Bobby Zankel, Tom Lawton, Craig McIver, Bob Meashey, and Steve Tirpak all gratefully and gracefully join in on the production, each lending their own voice so that the sum is truly greater than the parts. Not only that, but the great Larry Coryell, a longtime friend of Taylor's, is also featured on the album quite generously. In fact, the new recording of "Low-Lee-Tah,' a Coryell tune, is the fulfillment of a boyhood dream of Taylor's - to record this groundbreaking fusion composition with the composer himself. Recorded at Forge Recording in Oreland, PA Mixed and engineered by Ron DiSilvestro except "The House of the Rising Sun" and "Low-Lee-Tah," engineered by Brendan McGeehan Mastered by the Mastering House, Inc.
