Creed Taylor (b. 13 May 1929 in Lynchburg, Virginia) is an American record producer. He is the founder of two jazz record labels, Impulse! Records and CTI Records. He was also a producer of note at Verve Records and is widely acknowledged for bringing major bossa nova talent from Brazil (Antonio Carlos Jobim, João and Astrud Gilberto, Walter Wanderley, among others) to record in the U.S. in the 1960s. Previous to bringing Brazilian talent to the U.S., he had produced the first bossa nova album featuring only U.S. musicians released in the United States, Jazz Samba (1963).
