O.W. edited by Rob Duboff and Jeffrey Sultanof. Arranged by Mary Lou Williams. For big band (2 Alto Saxophones, 2 Tenor Saxophones, 4 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums). Swing/African Waltz. Medium. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8790). This interesting Mary Lou Williams arrangement was written in 1967 for the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Duke never did play it, however. The tune was originally written in 1953 and recorded during a quartet date with Don Byas. Mary Lou later would adapt for chorus recording it in 1970 as "Mary Lou's Mass." This arrangement moves between straight ahead swing and African Waltz. There is a solo section for tenor saxophone that may be opened up for additional solos. For the African Waltz section a sample drum pattern has been supplied by Ndugu Chancler as Mary Lou did not include one in her score. In addition, an optional guitar part has been supplied and piano voicings indicated by Mary Lou have been included. This is not a technically difficult arrangement and the ranges are moderate making this playable by less experienced bands and a great opportunity to expose musicians to Mary Lou Williams's style of writing. Ranges: Trumpet 1 to C#6; Trombone 1 to Bb5.

African Fingerstyle Guitar DVD by John Low. For Guitar (Finger). Solos. Grossman-Guitar Workshop. African. Multiple Levels. DVD. Duration 85 minutes. Published by Grossman's Guitar Workshop (MB.GW932DVD). The golden age of African fingerpicking guitar was in the 1950s and 1960s. The great players and recording artists of that time included Jean Bosco Mwenda and Losta Abelo from Zaire and George Mukabi from Kenya. Guitarists from other parts of the world have rarely if ever had a chance to learn their songs and playing techniques. On this video their arrangements are taught by John Low, who has lived, worked and studied with African musicians, including those mentioned above. There are some interesting links with American guitar styles but there are just as many differences, including rhythms borrowed from traditional African music and catchy up-beat patterns. African fingerstyle guitar is usually accompanied by rhythms played on a bottle. John Low is accompanied on this DVD by Frans Maathuis and Keith Jackman on bottles. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
