Sam Taylor

After the controversial musical Jesus Christ Superstar overran the world, one-time Atlantic Records partner Herb Abramson and classical music mogul Don Gabor got together to produce funky reinterpretation The Soul Of Jesus Christ Superstar. The cast is a mix of minor soul, jazz, and gospel singers including Sammy Turner, Jaye Kennedy, JD Bryant, Robert Banks, and Sam Taylor, performer of “Heaven On Their Minds” and the title track. In the hands of Taylor, the satirical bite is removed from the original intention of the Webber/Rice composition, and what remains is another funky gospel accident.
