Wynton Marsalis plays the music of Mary Lou Williams

The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis honors this largely underappreciated pianist, composer and arranger who was also a mentor of Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell.
The concert features guest vocalists Andy Bey and Carline Ray, pianist Mulgrew Miller, and many compelling masterworks that Ms. Williams wrote for large ensemble.
Thursday and Friday, May 13-14, 2004, 8pm at Alice Tully Hall

  1. I would like to get a copy of the sheet music for Mary Lou Williams’ jazz mass. My father-in-law has been asked to form a jazz ensemble to perform this mass as a part of his church’s Black History Month program.

    Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Reginald Wright
