GOJR 100

Mary Lou WilliamsAfter a long period working in the Catholic church, Mary Lou Williams re-emerged in the early '70s resume her ever stimulating career as a jazz pianist. Zoning is one of her finest, with performances by Bob Cranshaw, Mickey Roker and Zita Carno. Rather than sounding like a veteran of the 1920s, Mary Lou Williams sounds 40 years younger on this recording, showing the influence of McCoy Tyner, and in places hints at free jazz.
