World Premiere: All-4-One's Jamie Jones helps Paul Taylor's "Ride"

(October 22, 2021) A quarter century into his enviable career, saxman Paul Taylor is still pushing musical boundaries. To call him a “contemporary jazz” performer doesn’t quite capture his oeuvre. And he shows even more of his musical dexterity on his uncoming November 5th album release, And Now This, which pushes even more the dance side of his work.

Working with longtime collaborator and lifelong friend Dino Esposito, Taylor has delivered an album of compelling original songs. But he also includes a dancetastic cover of EDM star Regard’s 2019 hit, “Ride It.”

With All-4-One lead singer and longtime SoulTracks friend Jamie Jones deftly handling the lead vocals, “Ride It” is driving-with-the-top-down music for a sunny day, a pure dose of joy. As Taylor describes the vibe behind this new work, “We’re coming out of the pandemic, this is what I’ve been creating, we’re kicking it back into high gear and we are more open-minded in our approach to music than ever.”

We’re proud to present the World Premiere of “Ride It.” Enjoy it with us!
