We begin the 804th episode with a vibraphonist Cecilia Smith and music from the Mary Lou Williams Resurgence Project. From there, we hear from Mary Lou Williams herself with a live recording from 1936. Throughout this episode, we hear new music from George Coleman, Ben Rosenblum, Walter Smith III and Snarky Puppy. In between, we go old school with Joe Morris and His Orchestra, Curtis Lundy and Jackie Gleason. It all comes to a close with baritone saxophonist David Larsen and music from The Peplowski Project. Dig the jazz, my friends.
