Over the last 20+ years, Mark Taylor's work performing and recording with modern musical giants Max Roach, Henry Threadgill and Muhal Richard Abrams, among many others, established his reputation as a go-to French Hornist in the jazz and improvised music communities.
SECRET IDENTITY, Mark's newest ensemble, now puts the focus squarely on Mark Taylor the composer. Putting aside the French Horn for the composer's pen, Mark has enlisted the aid of fellow musical travelers Darius Jones and Jonathan Finlayson on alto sax and trumpet, and the stellar rhythm section of Ken Filiano, bass and Michael T.A." Thompson at the drums to explore his obsession with drama and narrative in contemporary improvised music.
