Mary Lou Williams was a much sought after arranger as she was harmonically ahead of her time. She adapted to and influenced the stylistic changes in jazz helping its evolution from blues, to boogie woogie, stride, swing, be-bop, and avant-garde. She is considered to be one of the top composers in Jazz history. Mary Lou Williams is perpetually contemporary. In 1971 she was nominated for the Grammy Best Jazz Performance – Group for the album Giants, Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby Hackett, Mary Lou Williams. Showing her stylistic jazz diversity she performed duets with avant-garde pianist Cecil Taylor at a Carnegie Hall concert in 1977. Mary Lou William’s contributions to jazz have be honored by many. Kansas City named a street in her honor in 1973. Duke University honored Williams by opening the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture in September 1983.
On Mary Lou Williams's The History of Jazz, a narrative record with piano illustrations that tells us as much about Miss Williams as it does about jazz, the pianist says quite casually and matteroffactly that she has played through all the eras of jazz. This is a reminder that jazz, even today, has a history of barely 75 years. And it is an even stronger reminder that very few jazz musicians have taken a broad overview of the music as a whole. She plays the same song on History of Jazz, but she first recorded it in 1955 in her first attempt at a retrospective album, A Keyboard History (made for the Jazztone Society and long out of print). It is a blues ballad, taught to her as a child by her stepfather, which she considers the most beautiful ballad I've ever heard.
Digitally re-mastered two-fer containing the Jazz pianist's difficult to find 1955 LP a Keyboard History in it's entirety. Williams is showcased here in both a trio setting with bassist Wendell Marshall and drummer Osie Johnson on some tunes, as well as solo piano on many selections. As a bonus, we have added another complete album by the pianist recorded the previous year in Paris. All ten tracks on Mary Lou are trio performances featuring Buddy Banks on bass, and Jean-Louis Viale on drums.
