[INSiDE] THE JAZZ NOTE® Presents “Billy Taylor: The Unsung Jazz Ambassador” Hosted by Christian McBride
If you had to guess which iconic jazzman had the following attributes—father of jazz education; composer of over 300 songs, including the civil-rights anthem “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free”; Artistic Director for Jazz at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; NEA Jazz Master—would your first thought be pianist Billy Taylor? Tune in and learn how this incredible artist and social advocate profoundly shaped the impact of jazz on American culture. We will be joined by Billy Taylor’s longtime drummer, the great Winard Harper, for direct insight.
