Editorial Reviews

Paul Taylor has just one question for his fans who have been BURNIN for more since his last hit album in 2009: Are you ready for PRIME TIME? the popular saxophonist certainly is. Fresh from kickin it up live these past few summers as part of the Gentlemen of the Night Tour, Taylor is keeping things soulful, funky and innovative as ever on his sixth Peak Records album (and first in a new partnership with eone 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".

** 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.

Just like every Paul Taylor CD that came before it, this one is awesome... I never have to listen to a new CD of his before buying, I love his style and have never been disappointed... and thanks Amazon.com, for making it so easy to order my jazz CDs here online without any hassle... great selection too!

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 Taylor's music and for some reason did not have this particular collection of music. Paul shows his love for music, and plays with passion. I never get tired of his music and he is one of the nicest people I have ever met.

I was honored to have met him and his wife on the Smooth Jazz Cruise and he was so sweet and polite, and you could tell that he truly loves performing.

There is nothing like living in California in the Summertime. Drop the top, drive the coast and listen to Paul Taylor! Better than any alcohol, pill, smoke...you cannot help but smile and relax. Favorite on Prime Time is "Laronda" but maybe I am just partial to a husband who writes a song for his wife! That's a WOW moment! I have seen Paul LIVE many times and he is so sweet to sign all the CD's you bring! So, very soon, my Prime Time will be signed too! Thanks Paul, this is a great, relaxing 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.
