Musical History:   R&B Master SAM TAYLOR
Tomorrow we celebrate the birthday of our friend, the late great blues guitarist and vocalist Sam Taylor, a seminal figure in modern American musical history. We are re-issuing his movie LIVING THE BLUES to honor his musical legacy.

The songwriter of hundreds of songs, many of them hits such as “Peace Pipe”, performned by the B.T.Express,  Taylor’s songs were recorded by Freddie King, Chubby Checker, Son Seals, Jimmy Witherspoon, Brook Bention, Jay and the Americans, Joey Dee, Maxine Brown, and Joe Tex.  :Taylor was also bandleader for Big Joe Turner, the Isley Brothers, Tracy Nelson, Otis Redding, and Sam & Dave.Taylor’s more popular recordings included “Funny”, “Drinking Straight Tequila”, and 
“Voice of the Blues”. He has been inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

Sam’s only starring movie role as an actor was in LIVING THE BLUES, in which he plays an R&B musician and singer, winning the FilmTrax Award for best soundtrack at the International Festival of Music in Film.

Sam was part of the explosion of freedom in the 1960s, when the people rose up to stop racial segregation and to stop the Vietnam War.  I wrote a novella about it:
