About

For the 23rd year, we highlight the legacy of pianist, composer, educator, and humanitarian Mary Lou Williams (1910–1981) with a night of phenomenal music from Brazilian pianist, singer, and 2015 Grammy Award® winner Eliane Elias; American jazz pianist Amina Claudine Myers with her Trio; and Israeli native clarinetist Anat Cohen with her Tentet (Musical Director Oded Lev-Ari). A trailblazer who taught herself to play piano as a child, Williams wrote hundreds of compositions and collaborated with jazz greats including Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Duke Ellington.
