Soul on Soul: A Tribute to Mary Lou Williams

“Mary Lou Williams is perpetually contemporary.”  – Duke Ellington
2019 Artists-in-Residence Allison Miller and Derrick Hodge pay homage to pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams, an unsung jazz pioneer whose nearly 60-year career created a diverse and compelling body of work of more than 350 compositions. Miller and Hodge will include pieces from her epic devotional work, Black Christ of the Andes, of which “St. Martin de Porres” was given its West Coast premiere at MJF8 in 1965.

DJ Brother Mister

“I need some Crisco in my jazz, you know? Some fatback.”
– Christian McBride
DJ Brother Mister is the alter-ego of the six-time Grammy-winning bassist Christian McBride when he steps behind the turntables, spinning classic soul and funk — areas of music of which McBride is a connoisseur — while soloing over the tunes. As MJF62’s Showcase and Commission Artist, McBride will show Monterey a different aspect of his extensive musical heritage through this intimate and much-anticipated show.
