After wowing audiences last March, the WJO all-female version returns for another concert celebrating women in jazz. Mary Lou Williams was a prolific composer and pianist as was Lil Harden-Armstrong before her. Guitarists Mary Osborne and Emily Remler were respected and busy bebop musicians. Vocalist and saxophonist Vi Redd was a tour de force. And trombonist Melba Liston was a gifted player who played in Dizzy Gillespie's big band alongside numerous other projects.
