As artistic adviser, Moran will help select artists and develop one of the nation’s largest jazz programs. It includes more than 30 performances annually and concerts broadcast on NPR.
New York-based Moran says it’s time for his generation to pass along traditions from the jazz greats. He began learning from Taylor at age 16.
Taylor, who played with Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, became an ardent jazz advocate through radio, TV and his Jazzmobile venue.
