solos in 1930, such as Night Life and Drag-em. She was with Kirk in '29

Subject: [RedHotJazz] Mary Lou Williams
Many years ago I managed to tape on a cassette three numbers from the
early 1930s that were played on a show called The Big Broadcast from a
NY metropolitan area station. I thought I heard the announcer state
that Mary Lou Williams was in the band. Over the years I have tried to
find the song. I purchased some recordings of Andy Kirk and 12 Clouds
of Joy, but the music on the album, which commences around 1936, seems
to be a couple of years later than what I caught so many years ago.
Would anyone have any idea what music I may have heard? It had a real
swing in a restrained way - seemed a bit ahead of its time for the
