Convergence: An Imagined Musical Conversation Between Nina Simone and Mary Lou Williams
Convergence is a jazz concert and a dramatization celebrating Women’s History Month. This unique project was created and conceived by Healdsburg Jazz’s 2021 Artist in Residence Tammy L. Hall, featuring herself and fellow pianist Victoria Theodore in an imagined musical conversation between legends Nina Simone and Mary Lou Williams.
Hall and Theodore are accompanied by Sylvia Cuenca on drums and Ruth Davies on bass. Actress and spoken-word artist Ryan Nicole Austin narrates the story of a fictitious meeting in a hotel lobby between these two iconic pianists.
Healdsburg Jazz Artistic Director Marcus Shelby will make a live introduction to this concert, which was filmed at the Opus Studio in Oakland by NorthStarr Media Group, directed by Kevin Johnson.
