Mary Lou Williams, the "First Lady of Jazz," was an extraordinary pianist, composer, arranger, and master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing, and be-bop. Black Christ is both a powerful secular statement and a call to the divine. I am an avid fan of Williams and own a lot of her recorded work. Since there are sound samples on this page I am going to refrain from describing the music since they will convey much more information. I was a little surprised by Williams' voice on the spoken parts since it was a little shaky and nothing like what she sounded a year later when being interviewed on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz show.

Mary Lou Williams was the guest on the the very first Piano Jazz session ever, recorded in 1978 with Williams and bassist Ronnie Boykins. Host Marian McPartland is initially nervous interviewing her longtime friend and idol, and the cagey Williams still stands as a tough nut to crack. But once the giddiness subsides, McPartland exhibits signs of the masterful interviewer she would become, weaving in-depth discussion of the pianist's craft with a respectful sketch of Williams' personal history. Williams died in 1981, but her spirit lives on with Piano Jazz
