Rhythm & Jazz: a mix of soul-jazz, funk and blues...

Guitarist Jon Taylor and keyboard player Tim Richards have worked together backing US bluesman Mojo Buford, Chicago blues diva Deitra Farr and UK blues queen Dana Gillespie and were members of the blues-jazz-soul-funk band Grooveyard in the 1990s. They re-united in 2016. Taylor's credits include backing US bluesmen Champion Jack Dupree, Lefty Dizz and Charlie Sayles, as well as leading the acclaimed British blues band The Bop Brothers (1997-2000). Many of Britain's finest musicians passed through its ranks, including saxophonists Dick Heckstall-Smith, Ed Jones and Jerry Underwood, vocalist Earl Green and drummer Sam Kelly. The following decade saw JT joining The Daniel Smith Blues Band for ten years. Richards is a well known player on both the jazz and blues circuits. He has led various bands – Spirit Level, Great Spirit, Hextet, The Tim Richards Trio – and has released several albums. He has backed US bluesmen Joe Louis Walker and Larry Garner and was the pianist in Otis Grand & The Dance Kings, appearing on Grand's debut album, Always Hot. He is also the author of a number of tutorial books; his Improvising Blues Piano being the best selling blues piano tutor on the market. Lafone and Miles first came together in the mid 1970s backing American Danny Adler on the London pub rock circuit.

JT4 are four highly accomplished and experienced musicians whose music is a subtle blend of barrelhouse blues, Chicago R&B and jazz and has proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Emrys Baird
