From the Chicago Reader:
Minneapolis native Taborn first attracted attention as saxophonist James Carter’s pianist in the early 90s; since then he’s worked with a mind-blowing array of bandleaders including Roscoe Mitchell, Chris Potter, and Dave Douglas. He also was a close collaborator of Detroit techno great Carl Craig in his Innerzone Orchestra. He’s a true ensemble player, improving each project he’s involved with, but that’s come at the expense of his own career as a leader; he’s made only four albums on his own. But his newest effort, a solo recital called Avenging Angel, has been deservedly turning heads.
