Jan 02, 2011 Billy Taylor departs his body

Billy Taylor left the planet on December 28, 2010. He composed “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free," a fixture of the civil rights movement.

Dr. Taylor persuasively spread the jazz message beyond jazz afficianados, from discussing Jelly Roll Morton, to covering Ron Carter, to discussing the essential serious side of jazz improvisation.

Thank you, Dr. Taylor, for you, your mark on jazz history, and your spreading the jazz message.
