Abstract

Mary Lou Williams believed that jazz music has the power to heal individuals and communities. At age forty-seven, she converted to Catholicism, and chose voluntary poverty in order to rehabilitate the sick in her community. Her gospel message that “jazz is love” lives on through her extraordinary—if little heard—catalog of recordings and compositions.
