Mary Lou Williams was sporadically recorded during most of her career, so her appearance on a 1979 release (two years before her death) as a solo pianist at the 1978 Montreux Jazz Festival was a welcome addition to her discography and ended up being one of her greatest recordings. The opening medley is a history of jazz and includes spiritual, ragtime, gospel, Kansas City swing, boogie-woogie, and bop, all of which Williams plays with authority

Friert
A brilliant live recording! Sounds flawless like a fancy pressing. Mary Lou Williams was a boss lady, it's such a pleasure to listen to this. I've also seen the youtube video of her performance and you can tell how happy she is when she plays. A delight for any piano enthusiast!
