Deems Taylor Award

The ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award program recognizes books, articles, liner notes, broadcasts and websites on the subject of music selected for their excellence. The Awards were established in 1967 to honor the memory of composer/critic/commentator Deems Taylor who died in 1966 after a distinguished career that included six years as President of ASCAP.

I just won the 2006 award for liner notes for the Chet Baker CD, Career 1952-1988.

A huge thank you to Shawn Amos, over at Shout! Factory, who hooked me up with the assignment.
