Billy Taylor (Carolina del Norte, 1921) pianista, compositor, locutor y educador. Desde 1994 fue el director artístico de jazz en el Centro John F. Kennedy para las Artes Escénicas en Washington, DC. Activista del jazz, Taylor formó parte de la Junta de Fundadores Honorarios de la “Jazz Foundation of America” para salvar los hogares y las vidas de los músicos de jazz y blues mayores de Estados Unidos. Una de sus canciones más conocidas, "Ojalá supiera cómo se sentiría ser libre”, alcanzó mayor popularidad con el movimiento de derechos civiles de los años 50 y 60. Comenzó a tocar el piano profesionalmente a partir de 1944, con el cuarteto de Ben Webster en la calle 52 de Nueva York. Conoció a Art Tatum, quien se convirtió en su mentor.

Hoy lo escuchamos en “Paraphrase” [It's A Matter Of Pride – 1993], “Take the A Train” [You Tempt Me – 1989] y con Gerry Mulligan “Line For Lyons” [Live at MCG – 2007]. La segunda parte empieza con el pianista de Pennsylvania, Bob Degen - “My Old Flame” [Catability – 1998] seguimos con el muy buen pianista alicantino Franki Ramos Sextet “City Birds” [Space Especies – 2021] y ponemos punto final con el bateria que fué el primero en el proyecto de Pat Metheny, Danny Gottlieb “Upon A Time” [Aquamarine – 1987].

Thanks to all my Radio Richard listeners and today I have a special treat for you, my 2010 interview with Gary Sinise. star of stage and screen, well-loved for his many film roles such as Apollo 13, Forest Gump, and of course as the rugged Detective Mac Taylor in CSI: New York!!!” It’s easy to put people in convenient little boxes, but some people have more than one talent. Not only is Gary Sinise a superb actor and an actual movie star, he’s a rockin’, funky-butt bass player!! For this interview , I drove out to 29 Palms Marine Base in the middle of the Mojave desert. he not only talks about his acting but also shows why music is so important to him. After 9/11 he felt compelled to do something to help the soldiers risking their lives all over the globe. He formed The Lieutenant DAN BAND, a big 16-piece showband that travels all over the world bringing entertainment and a taste of home to American soldiers. On the very windy airfield in the dry but nevertheless picturesque area beloved by lizards and cacti, I asked Gary how he got his start in music. The Lt. Dan Band is of course named after the wounded soldier Gary plays in the movie Forest Gump. The band features some great musicians including acclaimed drummer Danny Gottlieb who’s played not only with Pat Metheny Group, but with John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock and The Blues Brothers Band! I asked my old buddy Danny Gottlieb about working with Gary on this project. You cannot get this content ANYWHERE else. SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel and don’t miss one episode.
