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!

Born and raised on the west side of Chicago, Cedric Ford was introduced to the world of gospel music at a very young age. Early on, people began to recognize his innate musical abilities. At the tender age of 13, Cedric served as the Minister of Music of his grandfather’s church where he served in this post for 14 years while nurturing and developing his incredible gifts.
Cedric credits the shaping of his talents musically, to his parents (Elder Collin and Evangelist Emma J. Ford). His musical influences are, Rance Allen, Commission, Stevie Wonder, The Clark Sisters, Donnie Hathaway, and many others.
This time in his life undoubtedly prepared him for his recognized work with the Stellar Award Nominated, Shekinah Glory Ministry where Ford produced, sang and wrote, songs on two of their highly successful CDs, “Praise Is What I Do” and “Shekinah Glory Live”.
During this same time, Cedric began to expand his ministry and was called upon to contribute to the projects by gospel music legend Dorothy Norwood and the GMWA’s Men’s Choir.

They were careful to avoid clichés in their writing and overused cover choices. “It’s about the spiritual side of the holiday and a lot about love as well,” says Kristin. “Christmas has become so commercialized. That’s why in one of the lyrics we ask, ‘What is Christmas?’ At the very end the answer is peace within. That’s what the real message is supposed to be.” and she adds, “To me, Christmas is also the most romantic time of year.”
