This fine trio set by pianist Mary Lou Williams (with bassist Larry Gales and drummer Eddie Marshall) was not released for the first time until 25 years after its recording. Williams' career lasted from the 1920s until her death in 1981. She starts off this live performance by saying that she is going to do a history of jazz, and she does cover several vintage styles in a medley (spirituals, blues, stride, boogie-woogie, and swing), but does not get past 1940. However, some of the individual songs explored at greater length are boppish and hint at later developments, even though there is nothing here that's all that avant-garde. The fact that 50 years after she first recorded Mary Lou Williams still sounded fairly modern was remarkable and she is in excellent form throughout this valuable recording.

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

Highs (his recordings) and lows (in his personal life). Lee Morgan was THE greatest trumpeter on the Blue Note label. A career that was brought to a shuddering halt by his ex-wife's gun…
