Jazz pianist, Bill Mays is one of the most energetic, joyful people in the business. The jazz world is filled with cranky musicians because it’s a cranky business. But not Bill Mays. At seventy-five, he’s going strong, playing classical and jazz concerts, recording, playing tennis three times a week and pouring good energy into the world. His influences range from Earl Hines and Art Tatum to Horace Silver and Wynton Kelly and his musical associations range even further, from his work with Art Pepper and Stan Kenton to Tom Scott’s L.A. Express to Frank Zappa to rock and roll with a drag queen group in the 1970s at the Whiskey A Go-Go. He and Judy talk about it all.
