Billy Taylor's Jazz At The Kennedy Center Broadcasts


Recommended Posts

I recorded a few of Billy Taylor's Jazz At The Kennedy Center broadcasts when we aired the series, but there are a lot of them that I missed.

Here is a summary of guests with the initial air date, the show had a 26 week season each year:

Does anyone know the best place to find the actual performance dates for these broadcasts? I don't know if anyone at Kennedy Center would be interested in researching them, but maybe there is another source...

Here's an article I wrote about Clark Terry's appearance on the program, which was published a couple of years after it aired:

Thanks for this. I attended the Heath show and some others but can't remember specifics. Is there anyway to get a copy of these recordings?
