“A band dedicated to the legacy of the under-recognized jazz great Mary Lou Williams delivers showstoppers with ease.” - Andy Gilbert, jazz journalist

 

“Mary Lou’s Apartment is the Real Deal.” — Dr. Dee Spencer, jazz professor

 

“[At] Sunday’s packed concert at Berkeley’s Freight and Salvage…the band delivered a crisp and extravagantly engaging program at a major venue, more than rising to the occasion.”

 

“…This fantastic 13-piece band brings their enthralling book of tunes and arrangements by Melba Liston and Mary Lou Williams (with a little Monk, Duke, and Hefti too) to Oakland's Terrace Ballroom on June 1…” - Andy Gilbert, San Francisco Classical Voice
