JALC searching the USA for a female jazz pianist to play with the JLCO

In celebration of Mary Lou’s 100th birthday, Jazz at Lincoln Center and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis are looking for a girl to swing our band, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO). We’re searching the entire country for a female jazz pianist age 15-or-under to perform one song with the orchestra as part of the Jazz for Young People concert Who is Mary Lou Williams? on November 6 and 7, 2009.

  1. I’m a composer associated with the Jazz Artists of Charleston organization (JAC). We are planning to perform Ellington’s Far East Suite in an upcoming concert and are looking for the big band score and parts. The Smithsonian has been helpful but some of the pieces seem sketchy, missing parts and the xerox copies are difficult to read. We have looked for the score but have not been able to find it except for rental. We would like to purchase it. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I was guided to your site by a recommendation from Anthony Brown PhD.

    Thank you,
