Terry Waldo, the protégé of the late Eubie Blake, is a virtuoso ragtime, stride, and blues pianist as well as a vocalist and performer, famous for his dry wit. Mr. Waldo is also an author, composer, producer, band leader and theatrical music director. In a professional career that has spanned over fifty years, Terry has produced and arranged over sixty albums.

Terry has appeared with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, where he presented the world premiere of his “Eubie Blake Concerto,” performed and composed for many TV programs and films including The Tonight Show, PBS documentaries on Storyville and Jack Johnson, and has produced

His book, This Is Ragtime is considered to be the definitive book on ragtime and it along with his 26-part series, of the same title, produced for National Public Radio, fueled the 1970s ragtime revival. Terry has also taught a ragtime course for Swing University at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
