Mary Lou Williams, why do we never hear about the women? A Jazz great that worked along side, playing , composing and arranging music for men whose names roll off of our tongues. Names like Benny Goodman , Duke Ellington, Charley Parker . Maybe she was known to those who are jazz enthusiast but to the ordinary person………?
Any way good for a quiet Sunday morning, enjoy
NPR has done series of articles in the last few weeks, just google – Mary Lou Williams, NPR and they will pop up. at least they did for me.
