About

During an era when jazz was the nation's popular music, Mary Lou Williams was one of its greatest innovators. As both a pianist and composer, she was a wellspring of daring and creativity who helped shape the sound of 20th century America. And like the dynamic, turbulent nation in which she lived, Williams seemed to re-define herself with every passing decade. Join Explore the Arts for a screening of Mary Lou Williams: The Lady Who Swings the Band, Carol Bash's new documentary on the life and legacy of this renowned jazz pianist, composer, and arranger.
