Martin Taylor Strikes Again

Justin Steyer
Guitarist, Martin Taylor, performing live in the KPLU Seattle studios.

Over the past several years, solo jazz guitarist, Martin Taylor, has basically become one of the gang here at KPLU. 

He’s such good company and such a brilliant guitarist that we invite him into our studios for a session almost every time he comes to town.

He's performed for us in a variety of musical configurations but this time around it’s just Martin and his guitar, offering beautiful performances of three songs and talking to host, Abe Beeson, about any number of things, from starting his own on-line guitar school to his recent making of a guitar duo CD, on which he’s his own accompanist.

You can also find our Studio Sessions available as a video podcast in iTunes.

Justin joined KNKX in 2009 as the station's first Multimedia Manager. In this role, Justin helped to produce multimedia content, and implement systems and procedures in efforts to transform KNKX from a traditional broadcast station into a multi-platform media organization.
Abe grew up in Western Washington, a third generation Seattle/Tacoma kid. It was as a student at Pacific Lutheran University that Abe landed his first job at KNKX, editing and producing audio for news stories. It was a Christmas Day shift no one else wanted that gave Abe his first on-air experience which led to overnights, then Saturday afternoons, and started hosting Evening Jazz in 1998.
