About this event

Mary Lou Williams wrote over 350 compositions throughout her rich and highly eclectic musical career. She also helped spawn an entire generation of young musicians during the 1940s that would precipitate the birth of one of the world’s most influential musical styles, known as bebop. Her students included musicians as influential and varied as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, and countless others. Monk was a regular at jam sessions at Minton’s and Monroe’s Uptown House which have frequently been cited as the birthplace of Bebop.
