Featuring Jane Reynolds and Laurie Lang
Washington Hotel Coffee Room
402 West Lakeside Street, Madison
For the 11/19 IMW, the theme will be the music of Mary Lou Williams. For the opening set, pianist Jane Reynolds will present a wide-ranging 40-minute set of Mary Lou’s music. A leader in Madison’s improvised music community for over 25 years, and co-host of “Strictly Jazz Sounds” on WORT-FM, Ms. Reynolds is the Midwest’s foremost interpreter of the instrumental music of Mary Lou Williams. The second set will be a jam session open to both professional and amateur musicians. Bring your favorite Mary Lou sheet music or just join in the music-making.
The IMW welcomes all people of all ages to bring friends and family to listen, cheer on the musicians, join in the music-making, eat the local salads, sandwiches, and drink the wine, beer and (of course) the coffee. The IMW is a program of the Madison Music Collective, with additional support from the Madison Jazz Society.
