Another Landmark

My sister-in-law Lisa celebrating being first to find the landmark on my Pittsburgh list to Mary Lou Williams. My sister Cam is in the background. The marker reads: “Mary Lou William (1910-1981) Famed jazz composer & pianist. A child prodigy, she grow up in this city went to Lincoln School here, 1919-1923. Played for Andy Kirk in 1930s then arranged music for Duke Ellington and others. Major works include ‘Zodiac Suite’ and ‘Mary Lou’s Mass.'”
