From Reuters, a more thorough explanation of how Mr. Taylor has allegedly been bilked.
Jazz pianist Cecil Taylor was swindled out of a prize worth about $500,000 by a general contractor who befriended him while working on the house next door to Taylor’s in New York City, the prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday. Noel Muir of Uniondale on New York’s Long Island, was awaiting arraignment on a charge of grand larceny in Brooklyn’s criminal court on Tuesday morning, and could not be reached for comment. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
