I talked to Dave Taylor on the phone yesterday about a number of things — web updates, YouTube, music, family — but the thing that stuck with me was this: he doesn’t think he made it as a bass trombonist because of talent. He attributes his success to hours and hours in the practice room. I dig that approach. Everyone knows Dave Taylor has plenty of talent, but his drive is what made him one of the best to ever play the horn.
This video once again features Dave and Daniel Schnyder in the studio, this time playing Duo Contertante from The Art of the Duo.
