Tauk biography
Founded in Oyster Bay, NY, USA in 2007

Hailing from the New York metropolitan area, TAUK are a quartet consisting of Matt Jalbert (guitar), Charlie Dolan (bass), Alric "A.C." Carter (keyboards/organ) and Isaac Teel (drums). Their exciting brand of instrumental rock fusion combines influences from funk, jazz, ambient and even hip-hop, and has been honed by a brisk live activity, both in their home region and in other parts of the US.

A very experienced outfit in spite of their young age, Tauk released three studio albums and three live ones (the latter only as digital releases) between 2013 and 2014. Their latest studio effort, "Collisions", helped them land an opening slot on UMPHREY'S MCGEE 2015 US tour.

Shapeshifter II - Outbreak
Tauk Crossover Prog

Review by Squire Jaco

4 stars TAUK is a four-piece (guitar/bass/drums/keys) instrumental rock fusion group from Oyster Bay on Long Island, NY. I've been listening to their music since their first album in 2013, which was excellent. In the three studio albums since then (and a couple of EP's and live albums), they've only gotten better! I've rated all of their albums 4 stars and higher, and this latest offering "Shapeshifter II - Outbreak" may just be a 5...

They just have this consistent output of inventive, melodic, exciting songs that make you feel good, and all the while you're gushing in amazement at each member's musical chops. I saw them live in Buffalo in 2016 shortly after their "Sir Nebula" album came out, and they just tore down the joint with their energy. (By the way, they have another double-live album called "Headroom" that I don't see listed here yet on PA, and it's a great intro to their oeuvre up to 2015.)

I see some people comparing them to Umphrey's McGee, but there is less jamming here, and no vocals. Too bad there aren't many other album reviews here of this band. It's a real gem.

Review by Rivertree

4 stars If you are looking for prog (related) bands with a proper improv/jam background, TAUK from New York might be a good choice as well. Composed of Matt Jalbert on guitar, Charlie Dolan (bass), Alric Carter on keyboards and Isaac Teel (drums) this quartet is acting rather similar to the undisputable US flagship Umphrey's McGee (UM). Hence please forgive me, when I'm comparing sometime during the course. The TAUK gigs are offering a sophisticated fireworks of fusion, rock and funk music basically - though a bit limited one or two will throw in, while missing any vocals all the way through.

So this is an one hour extract from a 2014 live performance, recorded in Atlanta, which shows them in great condition, that's my impression. For me it's their best live setting I could listen to so far. Due to the looooongtime experience playing together, UM are celebrating every gig like a happening, with much easiness and a greater variety in style, often intensively challenging the audience. TAUK are presenting their songs more concentrated on the own interaction here, it seems.

Some excerpts are close to the studio version, some extended, featuring much playfulness, like the impressive Tumbler for example. 'Live At Terminal West' is an enjoyable affair, should be played loud preferably. Overall this is well focussed on the jazz fusion component within the sound. Hereby the musicians' interplay is undoubtedly excellent. The compositions are above average, tricky enough to satisfy a prog fan, I would say. Easy to verify while visiting their bandcamp page.

Thanks to raff for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
