Bop-influenced guitarist Jamie Taylor maintains a busy performing career and has worked with leading UK musicians such as Alan Barnes, Jim Mullen, Steve Brown, Gary Potter, and F-IRE Collective's Carlos Lopez-Real. In 2005 Jamie featured at the North Wales International Jazz Guitar Festival, performing with Jim Mullen, and sharing the bill with ex-'Police' guitarist Andy Summers. In the field of popular music he has contributed to projects involving Mercury Music Prize nominee Richard Hawley, and Leeds-based indie band 'The Pigeon Detectives'. In September 2007, Jamie became Course Leader for Jazz at Leeds College of Music (the UK's largest conservatoire), where he is also a senior lecturer on the jazz faculty. Jamie's group 'Java' is completed by three fine musicians in pianist Jamil Sheriff, bassist Garry Jackson, and drummer Nick Smalley - each of whom are established in their own right as strong, individual voices on the UK jazz scene.
