About the Album

"With his debut recording, saxophonist Sam Taylor let’s one know what his musical values are, playing with honesty and grace, and remaining true to the folk elements of the music. An openhearted, lyrical storyteller, Taylor delivers his message with a big, authentic tone on the tenor and a great sense of swing. The album is comprised of lesser-known gems from the American Songbook, including the tender ballad My Future Just Passed, from which the album gets its name." Sam Taylor: tenor saxophone; Aidan O’Donnell: acoustic bass; Taro Okamoto: drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
