Thanks for this beautiful piece. I did a discography of Billy Taylor's early recordings. The very first track under his own name is included, too.

This generous and thorough and heartfelt obituary was truly Taylor-made and meant for you to write--from wishing to know "how it would feel to be free," to wondering how you, Marc, could fit into Jazz, from a revealing and far-ranging five-part interview, to enthusiastic encouragement penned in a book. I believe the Doctor is somewhere out there giving you a wink and the Taylor twinkle. Keep spreading the word.

It's even more astounding to see than to hear. Three giants from the days when 'everyone' was still alive and you could turn on some talk show at night or a Jazz show on a Sunday afternoon and see and hear the greatest Jazz talents in history.

Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO

Excellent piece, thanks!
