Bill Cunliffe 

Mary Lou's Blues

Live at the Culver Club featuring Bill Cunliffe - Piano, Tom Warrington - Bass, Paul Kreibich - Drums, Andy Martin - Trombone, Bob Summers - Trumpet, Rickey Woodard - Tenor Sax and Bob Sheppard - Alto Sax

Not the "Mary Lou Blues" I was looking for, a great boogy-woogy style piece by my favorite and Bill Cunliffe's teacher, Mary Lou Williams with post-war parallel chords on just about every note and wonderful inventiveness (not big on boogy-woogy style playing but hers is entirely worth hearing).  Bill Cunliffe is a great arranger, composer and player whose work I'm not very familiar with.  I hope to change that.
