Taylor has always been a great source of musical inspiration for me as a pianist and I have followed Billy Taylor's works with the Jazzmobile and his compositions and concerts since my own college years as a pianist, composer and music educator.
May he join those great pianists that he loved such as Fats Waller and Art Tatum in a heavenly Jam Session to be heard from above!!
