VIRGINIA MAYHEW QUARTET: Mary Lou Williams – The Next 100 Years
Renma, 2012

MAINSTREAM JAZZ – Saxophonist Mayhew leads a tribute to Mary Lou Williams, a great pianist/bandleader who emerged in the swing era but remained an innovative force through the 1970s, working in every style from big bands to the avant-garde. Friendly performances abound, with trombone star Wycliffe Gordon featured on 5 tracks. Solid work.

All good! Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9

1. 5:29 – upbeat blues in waltz time: sax and guitar solos swing away
2. 5:27 – cool-groove intro, trombone gets into it, sax & drums also solo
3. 7:57 – oooh… serene, meditative groove with a ballad-like melody; so nice!
4. 6:42 – sneaky bop: bass has the spotlight first, then they spread it around
5. 11:30 – starts slow and simple, then drummer sets up an upbeat burner
6. 7:46 – one of MLW’s best-known tunes, extra bluesy with great trombone!
7. 3:08 – low-key bebop: twisty melody into extended bass solo
8. 4:39 – oddball mashup of boogie-woogie, blues & a waltz actually works!
9. 5:39 – original tune: a low groover with twisty bop elements & rolling solos
10. 5:40 – laid back & bluesy original with slightly angular harmony
