Assembling an exceptional lineup of musicians and world-class entertainers, the first Taylor Made crew in 1987 set the stage for a remarkable journey.The group, including talents like saxophonist Terry Ahmed, vocalists Annette Batia, Joey Diggs, Sandra Toussaint, Henry Wright Jr, trumpeter Brian Freeman, drummer Greg Prieto, keyboardist Van Taylor, and bassist Tony Blasting, alongside Ron Walker Jr, embarked on a journey that spans hundreds of thousands of miles.From performances in schools to entertaining troops and participating in various festivals, Taylor Made Jazz emerged as a legacy in motion. Their dynamic approach and smooth style have resonated with audiences worldwide, taking them to destinations like Puerto Rico, Cuba, Italy, Greece, Spain, Germany, Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Jordan, France, England, and various African countries.Taylor Made Jazz's overwhelming response on CDs propelled them to the top of the MP3 Jazz charts in 2003. Notably, the group earned prestigious awards, including the Diamond Accord Award from the International Federation of Festival Organizations F.I.D.O.F. in 1996 and multiple R&B Awards presented by Night Life Magazine.In addition to their musical achievements, Taylor Made Jazz is recognized for their commitment to entertaining troops and allies overseas through organizations like AFE Armed Forces Entertainment, MWR, USO, and various charities such as the United Way Canada, Children's Hospital, UNCF, AIDS Research, and United Way Buffalo.
