Jason "Malletman" Taylor

Taylor is known for his unique presentation of Jazz, R&B and Swing, creating a signature sound that he calls “Vibrafunk.” He has been in the company of such greats as Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie, James Brown, Branford Marsalis, Steve Washington, B.B. King to name a few.

Taylor performs with his six-piece “Malletman Band,” and also with his “All-Star Band,” which features fellow percussionists Bernard “Pretty” Purdie on drums and Tito Puente, Jr. on timbales.

While his roots are in jazz, Taylor has expanded into many other genres. His instrument knows no boundaries. His performances attract people of all ages and cultures.
