The Jazz Life of Dr. Billy Taylor


227 pgs.
Indiana Univ. Press, Publ.

In this excellent collaboration with author Teresa L. Reed, Dr. Billy Taylor tells his extraordinary life story in his own words with characteristic humility, warmth, and eloquence. From amazing details of interactions with Malcolm X, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Coltrane and Mary Lou Williams, to the inspiration for some of his musical compositions, this is a book of major importance not only to the jazz field, but also to the study of the African American social and cultural experience in the 20th and early 21st centuries.
