3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK June 26, 2011
By Chris
Format:MP3 Music
I'm a huge Paul Taylor fan and really enjoy his smooth and sexy approach to his music. This album just didn't do it for me and almost seemed rush. There are a few tunes I enjoyed like Laronda and Say No More, and Prime time, but the rest were kinda bland. The vocals definitely could have been left out. If you're a PT fan definitely pick it up but don't expect it to be better than his others.. Ladies Choice was really his last great album... Somehow this one just wasn't as "sexy".

2.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight and formulaic background music. August 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
** and 1/2.
The American saxophonist Paul Taylor is primarily an instrumentalist, but ironically, the best tracks on his albums are usually the ones that feature vocalists -- and that holds true on "Prime Time", which is mostly an instrumental smooth jazz album but features R&B singers on occasion.
The vocal offerings include "Space" (which features singer Andrea Anderson-Olson) and "Can't Nobody", which features Jamie Jones of All-4-One fame; both are medium-tempo R&B of the urban contemporary variety. Taylor solos on both tunes, but the vocal performances make them the best tracks on this 2011 release.
Unfortunately, the instrumentals on "Prime Time" aren't nearly as substantial, which isn't surprising given Taylor's history.
Since the 1990s, the Denver native has been playing "safe sax" of the Kenny G/Dave Koz/Richard Elliot/George Howard variety; that approach has made him a favorite on smooth jazz stations, but for those who are interested in hearing more than just lightweight background music, that automatic-pilot approach gets old in a hurry.
From "Moment of Truth" to "Laronda" to "Say No More", "Prime Time" is full of formulaic instrumentals that are more than happy to fade into the background.
The album also includes a note-for-note cover of the Kings of Leon's 2008 hit "Use Somebody", which Taylor performs as an instrumental.
Some jazz purists would fault Taylor for embracing something by an alternative pop/rock group like Kings of Leon, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with Taylor recording "Use Somebody." The fact is that jazz instrumentalists have a long history of taking mainstream popular songs and using them as vehicles for personal expression.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Paul Taylor Deserves Prime Time". June 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Paul Taylor (instrumental saxophonist) delivers great jazz in the mould of Kenny G in this new CD release, titled 'Prime Time'. Paul Taylor provides wonderful saxophone as well as guitar & keyboard sounds in this CD (10 tracks) and provides inspirational vocals in some tracks, notably on "Can't Nobody" & "Space". Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Push To Start" (wonderful saxophone & music, very melodical and sound/music in this track reminiscent to Kenny G's musical sound), "Can't Nobody" (beautiful guitar/saxophone combination with great vocals), "Space" ('R 'n B' sound track with wonderful melody & female vocals) & "Use Somebody" (a slow track with incredible keyboard/saxophone/guitar combination & melody. This is my favourite track from this CD). Great tracks include "Moment Of Truth", "Don't Wanna Let You Go" & "Horizon", "Laronda" (uptempo track, great saxophone & vocals), "Say No More" & "Prime Time" (up-tempo title track for this CD with great drums/saxophone/guitars combination). On overall, Paul Taylor is in good 'space' in this CD release delivering great jazz that deserves 'prime time', a recommended CD listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Punchy Sound November 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is very close to the real sound and rhythm is punchy. Even the slight change of the tone of sax is fully expressed. You can enjoy the warm ambient in this cold season, especially it fits the mood of morning. It is worth the title of "Prime Time".

Have always loved Paul Taylors music. This one is just as good as the rest of his CD's . Would rather not have the singing on it though.
