Mick Taylor to Play the Iridium

Published: 2012-03-21
Mick Taylor Mick Taylor, the guitarist best known for his work with the Rolling Stones during the early 1970s, will perform six shows at the Iridium in May, the club announced on Monday.

Mr. Taylor joined the Stones in 1969 at 20 after playing with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers for several years. He brought a smooth, lyrical guitar style to the band's often jagged sound and is credited with helping shape some of its best albums, among them “Let It Bleed," “Sticky Fingers" and “Exile on Main Street."

At the Iridium, Mr. Taylor will play two shows a night from May 9 through May 14 with a band of seasoned studio professionals from the jazz and funk realms: keyboardist Max Middleton, bassist Wilbur Bascomb, drummer Bernard Purdie and guitarist Jon Paris. On the last night of the series, he will be joined by the Les Paul Trio.
