One of the swing era's greatest pianists, Teddy Wilson's restrained, sophisticated approach moved the instrument into fresh territory. I worked with Teddy in 1984, two years before his death and it was an experience I'll never forget. He gave me his card and told me to call him if I got up to Boston. Unfortunately he was gone before I had the chance. I'm keeping that card though.
