She would often tell me that he had asked after me, many years after I had left NPR. He was a true gentleman and someone who taught me a great deal about jazz. Billy Taylor. While he was considered by many as a jazz giant, he was also just Billy to me and I loved and respected him more than I can ever say. A lover of people, a dedicated educator and a tireless ambassador of jazz, he was also humble and understated, always with a kind word to say.
Those who knew him were always greeted with that warm smile and a big hug. Working with Billy and his trio bassist Chip Jackson and drummer Winard Harper was a dream come true for me.
Our list of guests for "Billy Taylor's Jazz at the Kennedy Center" over the many years read like a who's who of jazz. I learned so much from him and heard so much great music and conversations about life and of course about jazz. I can remember being on the road for the first time with Billy and doing a show with saxophonist Nick Brignola in Troy, N.
Billy drove up a couple of hours from his home and I can remember him getting out of his car with perfectly pressed tan slacks, a bright red sweater with a white shirt underneath and a big smile on his face. He checked in and then we went to the venue where he practiced before soundcheck while Tim Owens, our executive producer, and I worked on the script.
Once we completed soundcheck, we recorded station breaks and ate a quick dinner. Billy then changed into his suit, and went back to practicing before the gig that night. After the performance, Billy stayed and took pictures and spoke to everyone until the last guest had gone home. When Billy was on stage, talking to his guest and playing music, he was in his element.
He had an abundant amount of energy and playing jazz was something that he enjoyed immensely and it showed every time he hit the stage.
Over the last few years, I didn't get to see Billy as much as I would like, but whenever I did it was like no time had passed. He was always just as kind and thoughtful as ever. While my heart is heavy now, I know Billy is up in heaven making it just that much more beautiful and I truly believe that he now knows "how it feels to be free. RIP Dear Billy. His trio always seemed to be having a grand time, and they played well enough to silence the noisiest club visitor.
I bought his LPs too. For some Billy celebration I gave him an album I'd kept for years -- the vinyl, in a sleeve frayed from sliding the LP in and out so often, putting it on the phonograph. Jump cut to NPR, and the wonderful work he did for us. He had a joyful quality, which was catching. You could tell music was in his bones, and was giving him an inner, upbeat rhythm. We last spoke just this past spring, when he was in Washington for a Kennedy Center celebration of Ella Fitzgerald.
I interviewed him for a story on Fitzgerald -- part of our 50 Great Voices series. Billy had accompanied Ella in the s, and spoke of her great musicianship -- "the feeling of music that she brought -- you had to swing, you had to go along with the music. He gave so generously of his many musical and humanitarian gifts.
Billy Taylor arrives at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony in Taylor was the artistic adviser for jazz at the Kennedy Center since He was very sensitive to the quality of sound and its importance, and I felt honored that he asked me through the years to help present him in the best possible light. When Jazz Alive! He was on television! CBS Sunday Morning! That was A Big Deal! And Billy's jazz pieces would be the show's highlight for many of us.
