Mary Lou Williams

Marian McPartland put together an all female group with Vi Redd on alto sax, Mary Osborne on guitar, Lynn Milano on bass and Dotty Dodgion on drums. They recorded an album called - "Now's The Time" on Halcyon.

This was recorded live at "The Monticello" in Rochester, New York on June 30,1977

I was living in Rochester at that time, and went to see the group at the Monticello. Don't recall if I was there the evening when the album was recorded.

The four tracks with Clark Terry were added as bonus tracks to the Verve Elite Edition CD of an EmArcy LP - indeed good music!

Some of the tracks were in the Forty Years of Women in Jazz Box set on Stash or the two CD version on Jass:

That looks like Kathy Stobart on the cover.

Leonard Feather also produced an "all female" session with Williams on Continental (I've got the 78s), with Mary Osborne, Marjorie Hyams on vibes, and Bridget O'Flynn on drums. Apparently, no female bassist was available, so Billy Taylor is listed on the labels as "Bea Taylor."
