I had the good fortune to see Mary Lou Williams twice, once in a solo concert up in the Berkeley area, and once at the Hollywood Bowl as a part of the Giants of Jazz package. She had replaced Monk in a group that included Dizzy, Sonny Still and J.J. Johnson, and did not disappoint! In both instances, solo and with a combo, Mary Lou impressed me an an artist who had developed an approach to her music early in life, but who had never ceased to grow and develop. She wrote this variation on the blues, “Little Joe From Chicago,” in the latter part of the 1930s. Here, in the 1970s, Mary Lou reinvents the tune in this concert performance.
