This CD, Billy Taylor: The Music Keeps Us Young, showcases music legend and Grammy Award winner Billy Taylor, a pianist who has stood at the forefront of the Jazz world for almost half a century. Now at the peak of his powers and performing with his trio that includes Chip Jackson on bass and drummer Steve Johns, Taylor brings matchless grace and authority to his robust and inventive originals, as well as his interpretations of standards composed by John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, and Johnny Green, among others. His career is recognized with the utmost adoration and respect. Dr. Billy Taylor is one of only three Jazz musicians appointed to the National Council of the Arts and currently works as the Artistic Director for Jazz at the John F.
