If you are not acquainted with the genius and the greatness of Mary Lou Williams, please let us introduce you to one of the most amazing figures in Jazz history. Pianist, Arranger and Composer, Mary Lou was beloved by MANY - including Duke Ellington. He couldn't say enough about her style and the person behind it. Ms. Williams wrote hundreds of compositions, arranged for the prestigious male bandleaders of her day (remember those times - a WOMAN arranging? A WOMAN having that kind of influence?!) and was both friend and mentor to Monk, Miles, Parker and Gillespie.
Known as "The Little Piano Girl of East Liberty" (Pittsburgh), Mary Lou was self-taught and performed in public for the first time at age six. Her confidence never wavered through the years and she came to the attention of those who appreciated her strong skills and positive personality. One that landed on WNEW in New York City - as a broadcaster with a popular show.
So MUCH to say about Mary Lou - and no one can say it better than CAROL BASH. She is the director and producer of "Mary Lou Williams: The Lady Who Swings The Band." This noble endeavor is an IndieGoGo project that is looking to fulfill its mission by October 28th! There are important movers and shakers involved in this film who LOVE Jazz and LOVE the subject of this labor of love. You'd recognize the names - and we'll drop them when Carol visits on 10/21 at one p.m. Eastern time.
You'll hear about the musican and spiritual evolution of Mary Lou - she converted to Roman Catholicism later in life - and it colored her world in a way that surprised even herself. Maybe inspired by that journey, she said: "Jazz is love - you have to lay into it and let it flow." Join us in The Chat Room on 10/21!

Laughter comes to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday October 15, 3 pm ET when Halli brings you two of the funniest people on the planet. Joining Halli is esteemed director and author John Waters and Seinfeld writer and author Peter Mehlman.
John Waters is an American filmmaker, actor, writer and visual artist best known for his cult films, including Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. DeMented. He is also the author of ROLE MODELS, CRACKPOT and SHOCK VALUE. His new book CARSICK tells the hilarious story of America’s most beloved eccentric’s mid-life crisis journey: a cross-country hitchhiking journey.
Peter Mehlman began his career at the Washington Post. He slid to television in 1982, writing for SportsBeat with Howard Cossell. He has written for numerous national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, GQ, Esquire, and a multitude of women’s magazines. One year after moving to Los Angeles he ran into Seinfeld writer and producer Larry David, which led to Mehlman’s writing the first freelance episode of the popular TV Show, rose to executive producer and coined such phrases as “yada yada” and “double dipping.” His new novel IT WON’T ALWAYS BE THIS GREAT is a brilliantly funny story of the mid-life crisis of a Long Island podiatrist that begins on a sub-zero, wind-chilled Friday night when the podiatrist crosses paths with a bottle of horseradish.
