Listen to "Mr. Boston Jazz"

Apr 13, 2011

Boston jazz legend, Fred Taylor, will be Steve Schwartz’s Special Guest on “Jazz on WGBH with Steve Schwartz,” WGBH 89.7 FM, Friday April 15 from 8:00 PM to 12:00 Midnight.  

Fred is currently Entertainment Director of Scullers Jazz Club, one of the best hazz clubs in the Greater Boston area.  He was co-owner and operator of two of Boston’s legendary jazz  clubs, The Jazz Workshop (check out this bootleg recording of Miles Davis at the establishment circa 1973) and Paul’s Mall (where Bob Marley played arguably his first US show that same year). Those venues, along with the late lamented Storyville and Pooh's Pub were the backbone of Boston's jazz scene for years.  He also created the Tanglewood Jazz Festival.  

Fred will share his fascinating musical history with Steve Schwartz.  The journey spans a period of time from the late ‘40s to the very present.
