The jazz life of Dr. Billy Taylor by Billy Taylor( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Undetermined and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the autobiography of the legendary jazz ambassador whose work spans more than six decades, from the heyday of 52nd Street in 1940s New York City to CBS Sunday Morning. Beginning with his childhood in segregation-era Washington, D.C., Billy Taylor recounts how he came of age as a jazz musician in smoke-filled clubs pulsating with the rhythms of bebop, and later climbed to world acclaim as an internationally recognized music educator and popular media figure. Through his life's work, Taylor fought not only for the recognition of jazz music as "America's classical music" but also for the recognition of black musicians as key contributors to the American music repertoire. Peppered with anecdotes detailing encounters with other jazz legends such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Jelly Roll Morton, Art Tatum, Fats Waller, Dinah Washington, Ben Webster, and many others, this autobiography is not only the life story of a jazz musician and spokesman, but also a commentary on racism and jazz as a social force. --Book Jacket
