Mary Lou Williams, the "First Lady of Jazz," was an extraordinary pianist, composer, arranger, and master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing, and be-bop. Black Christ is both a powerful secular statement and a call to the divine. Duke Ellington said, " beyond category-a pianist who sums up in herself the full essence of jazz and expresses it with skill and perception that few other jazz musicians have even approached

One of the greatest jazz records of all time. Mary Lou Williams’ iconic self-titled album has been reissued on vinyl via Smithsonian Folkways. Read next: A brief introduction to Civil Rights jazz on vinyl. Originally released in 1964, and later issued in Europe as Black Christ Of The Andes, the album has gone on to become a deep jazz gem, featuring choral spirituals like ‘Black Christ Of The Andes’ and ‘The Devil’, Williams’ tender trio rendition of ‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’ and the gospel blues romp ‘Praise The Lord’.

She wrote and performed religious jazz music such as Black Christ of the Andes (1963), a hymn in honor of the St. Martin de Porres; two short works, Anima Christi and Praise the Lord. In this period, Williams put much effort into working with youth choirs to perform her works, including mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City before a gathering of over three thousand. In 2006, Geri Allen's Mary Lou Williams Collective released their album Zodiac Suite: Revisited.
