Artist Biography by

Robert Taylor is a part-time AMG contributor who makes his living as a project manager for one of those "Dot Com" companies. He graduated from UCONN with a BS and received his MBA from Sacred Heart University. A self-confessed music junkie, he has been studying music history for over 20 years. He states that his musical awakening came upon hearing Joe Pass' Catch Me recording at a friend's house. He has played the drums for several years and is back studying formally, hoping to someday have the opportunity for someone to review his recordings. Besides playing the drums, he enjoys playing golf and hockey; however, most of his time is spent enjoying his wife and three sons. ~ Robert Taylor
