Smoke Notes

Gifted American Blues musician Otis Taylor is a master craftsman who has created his own signature “trance blues” style by melding haunting guitar and banjo work, syncopated rhythms and a combination of gruff vocals, shouts and yells with raw passion.

Otis Taylor's Contraband is the 9th studio release since Otis’ return to music in 1995 and offers 14 compelling originals.

Here Otis Taylor is reunited with several longtime collaborators including the supple-toned Ron Miles on cornet, pedal steel guitarist Chuck Campbell (from American Sacred Steel gospel group The Campbell Brothers), djembe player Fara Tolno, West Africa, fiddler Anne Harris from Chicago, IL and the Sheryl Renee Choir. Bass is handled by Taylor's daughter Cassie and Todd Edmunds. Rounding out the band are Jon Paul Johnson on guitar, Brian Juan on organ, and Larry Thompson, former house drummer for Colorado's world-renowned Caribou Ranch recording studio.
