Yes and it's amazing - that would make him 18 when he first toure the States with Mayall - and I think it was that year too that he jammed with Hendrix backstage.
The first US Tour with Mayall was Jan 9th - Feb 10th 1968. So Taylor turned 19 during that tour.
The Winterland / Fillmore West gigs promoted by Bill Graham were part of this tour (1-4 February). Hendrix and the Bluesbreakers shared the bill with Albert King.
Prior to that MT had already met Jimi at gigs in London and spent some time with him. By the late 60s Taylor knew Hendrix well enough to use his place in Mayfair (Brook St) as a crashpad.
The pictures that Ethan Russell took backstage at Madison Square Garden are from 1969. November 27 of that year was Jimi's last birthday.
Here's 'your' MT pick in better quality, Smokey:
