"Larry Taylor is the real deal... deep blues...able to go into the blues landscape people associate with Howlin' Wolf and Elmore James...timing is impeccable...clear, passionate and persuasive."
--Chicago African American poet and essayist Sterling D. Plumpp after hearing Larry Taylor's album They Were in This House
Larry Hill Taylor, legendary blues singer and drummer, is the oldest son of the master guitarist Eddie “Playboy” Taylor—VeeJay recording artist, Jimmy Reed’s music partner and architect of the boogie and “lump” rhythms that power Chicago’s world-famous blues music.
Today Larry’s a legend in his own right, and a leader of the current Chicago Blues generation. He faithfully carries his Mississippi-born father’s 1950s music traditions, and can also bring the R&B/soul tunes which sprang from blues in his own West Side neighborhood.
