“Fingerstyle” phenomenon Tommy Emmanuel teams up with Britain’s jazz icon Martin Taylor in this highly anticipated guitar duets CD on Mesa/Bluemoon Recordings.”The sound they put together is inviting, homely and truly incredible.

MESA BLUEMOON – DULCIE TAYLOR/Only Worn One Time
Here’s a pretty sweet find. Taylor feels like a singer/songwriter that wanted to try something new after touring with Sade. While the material looks like a bummer on paper, in your ear, it’s oddly hypnotic and mesmerizing. Taylor has a tiger by the tail on a lot of levels from writing to performing. Supported by a boat load of talent intent on not letting her down, this isn’t down mouth college girl stuff. This is killer adult listening for anyone that wants more than beats in their bytes. Sure fire killer stuff from a major talent that been hiding from the rest of us for too long.
