This Musical City: Mary Lou Williams

April is Jazz Appreciation month and to celebrate WDUQ’s occasional series "This Musical City" is taking a look at the life and career of Mary Lou Williams. Each May the Kennedy Center in Washington DC hosts the Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival. This year's event is May 21-23 and a Pittsburgh contingent will be attending. Williams would have 100 years old this year. Listen to WDUQ Jazz Host Bob Studebaker’s story on the life of the woman once called “ the little piano girl from East Liberty.”
