This is the story of Fred Taylor, who since 1960 has been bringing entertainers and audiences together in Boston and New England in nightclubs, concert halls, and festival grounds. As the owner of the legendary Back Bay nightclubs Paul's Mall and the Jazz Workshop, Taylor had a front-row seat for the greatest names in music and comedy in the 1960s and 1970s. As the entertainment director at Scullers Jazz Club for twenty-six years, he continues to present the best in contemporary music. Fred Taylor's entertainment universe is peopled by pop superstars, jazz legends, and sparkling storytellers-a galaxy of singers, saxophonists, and stand-up comics. They're all part of Taylor's world, and you'll learn about them-and the ups and downs of his utterly unpredictable career in the music business-in the pages of this book.
