Is there a group rate for families (like 4
or more?) We’d love to spread it down the generations!

Thanks for stopping by and even more so for the question. You ask a good question. I hope we can do a group rate. This is not going to be a money maker for us as we are just trying to cover the cost of great musicians. An average of $7 per week seemed reasonable but for those of us with big families nothing is cheap! I’ll have an answer by the time tickets hit, if things are too steep for you, just let me know…I don’t want cost to keep anyone from attending.

Anything on Mary Lou Williams?
Read “What’s Your Story, Morninglory?”.
I had the privilege of seeing this woman of great faith play in a jazz club in S.F. about 2 years before she passed away.
She wrote a number of “religious” jazz compositions, ” Black Christ of the Andes”, three Catholic Masses, etc;
Also…you’ve not mentioned the Duke and his Sacred Concerts.

This is a fantastic idea and I wish you God’s richest blessings in Christ and a “jazz-shaped faith.”

You go, Robert!!! I was so excited to visit My Goodness Magazine, and happen across news from “the Jazz Theologian” while exploring the site. I know that you are excited about launching this series, and while I am unsure of my ability to make it, I will certainly make every attempt! I know that Rowland would probably really enjoy it… so we’ll see what we can do to accomodate the schedule! Very Exciting!!!
