Cecil Taylor Wins $500,000 Kyoto Prize
(Published: July 23, 2013)

Jazz pianist Cecil Taylor has won the Kyoto Prize awarded by the Inamori Foundation in Japan. Laureated in the category of arts and philosophy, Taylor will receive a diploma, a 20K gold Kyoto Prize medal and half a million dollars ($500,000).
Well deserved prize for a jazz icon coming from a scene where it's not infrequent to see world-class musicians vehemently rivaling for the privilege of playing pass-the-hat gig. Hopefully, Taylor will look for opportunities to give back to our community.
