Mary Lou Williams’ music transcends time in American culture. With a foundation in the Blues, Mary Lou’s compositions reflect her life as a Black woman and a true triumph of the human spirit. Williams’ career began in the Swing Era with Andy Kirk’s 12 Clouds of Joy and concluded with her collaborating with artists such as avant-garde pianist Cecil Taylor in 1977.
