Mary Lou Williams' 'Zodiac Suite' Reimagined
Williams was an accomplished jazz pianist, arranger and composer whose musical abilities are displayed in the first of her major works.
Over her life, Williams collaborated with greats like Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, and Thelonious Monk. In 'Zodiac Suite' each movement was inspired by a musician born under the astrological sign. Clint Ashlock and the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra are among those contributing to a revival of the suite with a new arrangement.
