At 14, Willie joined the US Army, and was assigned to the 25th Infantry, an old and distinguished African American unit formed just after the Civil War. The Army turned out to be an excellent place to train as a musician. While stationed at Lockbourne Air Base in Ohio alongside the Tuskegee Airmen, Willie happened to read an interview with the famous jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker.
He proposed that the University invite Duke Ellington, who Yale had recently awarded an honorary doctorate, to return for a special event to honor him and other luminaries of African American music. Today, the Ellington Jazz series continues to celebrate what Willie calls the “conservatory without walls” — the “invisible institution” through which African American music has been nurtured and developed over time.
