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!

Award-winning actor Barry Bostwick reminisces about The Rocky Horror Picture Show in this annual October tribute to that bizarre cult classic. Bostwick speaks candidly about his experience while making the film -- including weather problems, what it was like working with Susan Sarandon, his favorite scenes in the movie, and much more.
Boasting credits in over 100 films and TV productions, Bostwick may be best-known as the clueless mayor on Spin City, but he's a triple-threat entertainer -- singer, dancer, actor -- who created the role of Danny Zuko in Grease on Broadway and won a Tony for his work in The Robber Bridegroom. He's also a Golden Globe winner for his performance in TV's War and Remembrance. Among Bostwick's many films are: Movie, Movie; 101 Dalmations II; Spy Hard; Some Guy Who Kills People; and FDR: American Badass! His upcoming movies include Slay Bells, a horror flick in which he plays Santa, as well as the comedy Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse.
Although The Rocky Horror Picture Show bombed when it first opened in 1975, entertaining midnight showings soon catapulted the film into cult status. And the movie got a big boost when TV's Glee featured its own version of the outrageous musical numbers.
