Rod Taylor’s career started in Jamaica during the mid 1970’s. Born in Trenchtown and moving with a group of artists including Sugar Minott, Barry Brown and Tony Tuff, his first break came after meeting producer Ossie Hibbert who took him into the studio with Sly & Robbie for his first release, Bad Man Comes And Goes on Ossie Sounds 7 inch.
Throughout the rest of the 1970’s and early 1980’s, Rod made a name for himself with a range of tunes for various producers. These included the classic Ethiopian Kings, In The Right Way & Don’t Give It Up for Freedom Sounds, His Imperial Majesty for Mikey Dread’s Dread At The Controls label, Run Run & No One Can Tell I About Jah for Prince Far I, Words Of Parables & If Jah Should Come Now for Prince Hammer, Moving Out Ever for Linval Thompson and the Where Is Your Love Mankind album for Junjo Lawes, released by Greensleeves.
In the 1990’s he moved to France and began working in London with Robert Tribulation. A meeting with Blood And Fire Records led to a link with French label Patate who issued a compilation of his classics called Ethiopian Kings which served the added purpose of introducing Rod to a new audience.
I had a strong link with Patate at that time. They were distributing Jah Warrior in France and suggested I link up with Rod for some recording. I was more than happy to do this. I think it was around 2000 when Rod came to the studio for the first time, with Winston McAnuff. We did a couple of tunes that day and I was happy with the results. At the time that’s all it was going to be, a couple of tunes with the idea of releasing one as a single and another on a various artists showcase style album. As time went by we kept in touch and eventually decided to continue the works for a full album. It made sense, especially as I was working with a range of veterans from yard, so Rod Taylor fitted perfectly into this plan. He also had a big name in France as he was pretty much the only Jamaican artist in France at that time.
We arranged some more recording time at Conscious Sounds and the rest of the tunes were voiced in one day. Rod was a professional, schooled in the art of voicing Jamaican style, where time is money and singers get straight down to business without messing about or making mistakes.
After that session, we spent a lot of time finishing the tunes off with the usual suspects. Hughie Izachaar on guitar and melodica, percussion from Jonah Dan, full 3 piece horns section from Crispy Horns as well as Crispy’s Richard Doswell adding flute on a few tracks. A lot of time went into the mixing and the album was released on vinyl and CD in 2002, with 12 vocals on the vinyl plus 2 bonus dubs on the CD.
A very limited quantity of the vinyl is still available and the album with the 2 bonus dubs is available for download from Bandcamp.

So...I use Cubase 7.5, with a Zoom R16 (16 track controller, interface,mixer all-in-one recorder as well). A Sony TC500a reel to reel for analogue mix down when the feeling arises. I use a mix between M-Audio AV40s and a Sony 5.1 surround receiver with Kenwood speakers, plus another separate subwoofer to use with just the AV40s. As for cans I use Sony MDR7506s. Mics include but not limited to: Shure SM57, MXL3000, Audio-Technica pro63, and about 4-5 other AUdio- Technicas, old Sonys, and even an old, but good (believe it or not) Realistic. Plus some transducers. I use a Peavy Vyper 30 modeling amp but will just as often use the reel to reel for an amp because of the old tube driven sound, even though the Vyper has a thousand and one combos plus a pedal. I use a steel string mahogany acoustic, classical acoustic, arch top acoustic, 12-string acoustic, banjo, banjitar, acoustic double necked mandolin/guitar, electric LP style guitar, electric PBass style bass, Autoharp, and then there's the accordion, trombone, melodica, kalimba, harmonicas, assorted little drums, I have an upright and baby grand pianos, with a key studio keyboard and an MPK mini. I have the old standard drum machine: the Alesis SR16. As far as software: Kontakt with Maschine, Reaktor, RIG Urban elements, Massive, and all the free instruments that came with Kontakt and the full version of Cubase 7.5: HALion in many forms, Padshop, Retrologue, Prologue, Mystic, Groove Agent, LoopMash etc. I also use Progression Notation Software for Scoring. Along with some careful sound treatment and a 3 screen setup. That's my little home studio ( and it is small ) in a nutshell, there's other stuff but I'm out of time.

a scene from my personal fantasy™
my friend Bob Goldstick (he's the one playing melodica) just forwarded this to me. it's painted by Laurie Sorensen, a watercolor artist from Olympia, WA. she said I could share it.

the impressionist feel to it is what puts it into personal fantasy™ territory. if you don't know about it you can find out here:
