Remembering Mary Lou Williams

Mary Lou Williams would have been 100 years old today (Saturday May 8) had she not died of cancer back in 1981.
NPR produced this recollection of the first woman jazz iconic instrumentalist and arranger.
They also did this program introduced by Dee Dee Bridgewater which features Mary Lou in two concerts from 1976 and 1978.
Here she is the guest on Piano Jazz interviewed by that other great lady of the keyboard - Marian McPartland.
A true giant(ess) - her piano playing bears comparison with any of her contemporaries.
Lance.
