Summary
Dr. Billy Taylor has done as much as any living musician to advance the acceptance of jazz as the indigenous American art form. A classically trained composer and pianist, Taylor may be the most persuasive music educator in the United States. At the piano, Taylor traces with wit and charm his creative development and growing youthful awareness of the jazz form in enlarging musical boundaries. For Taylor, jazz is life and he makes clear its influence on himself and on all who have embraced its hypnotic potential.
