John 'Jaki' Byard - early 20th Century

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 189:

How did you study? Did you go back to school?

No, I studied at the library, checking out the records and music. Chopin, Beethoven, Ravel, Stravinsky, and, of course, listening to piano rolls.
