Led by Hammond organ-guru, James Taylor, JTQ stands with one foot planted firmly in 2018 – and other, just as firmly, somewhere south of the 1970s.
For a quarter of a century, the James Taylor Quartet have set the standard for the coolest sounds in funky acid jazz.
On dozens of mighty albums and at their legendary gigs at home and around the world, they’ve quietly become a byword for distinguished British creativity.
In addition to his work with JTQ – James has collaborated with the likes of U2, The Wonderstuff, Manic Street Preachers, The Pogues, as well as with Tom Jones on the multi-platinum album Reload.
JTQ are perhaps best-known and loved for their unrivalled live performances.
With James’ Hammond leading the way, JTQ jam out with sly rhythms and kitschy-cool melodies, their live favourites include JTQ’s debut single Blow Up, Green Onions, Time is Tight, JTQ Theme and of course, the inimitable, Starsky and Hutch.
