Composer/pianist Billy White is steeped in the jazz tradition, but the path he has taken so far is anything but traditional. He attended UCLA’s jazz studies program on a piano scholarship, where he was fortunate to be taught by jazz masters like Kenny Burrell and Gerald Wilson. While it was for his piano playing that has received awards (see below), it is White’s focus on composition which is evident in his recent album, “First Things First”, as well has his involvement in scoring a number of film, dance and theater projects over the recent few years.
