    The following is the sixth in our series of tributes to Dr. Billy Taylor, part of our birthday celebration of "Doctor T," who would have turned ninety this Sunday. Check wbgo.org/billytaylor for our full tribute page, which includes more clips and our exclusive webcast of Billy Taylor: A Life In Jazz, a new video documentary by Bret Primack.

    Photographer Bill May was on hand to capture many memorable moments at in the WBGO studios in the eighties and nineties, including the visit from Dr. Billy Taylor with bassist Victor Gaskin and drummer Bobby Thomas to inaugurate our new Steinway piano on November 1, 1987. Enjoy his beautiful and candid portraits of Dr. T!
