Janelle Gill is a highly emotive pianist whose lush playing embodies the impressionistic, colorful harmonies of modern jazz as well as the lyrical quality of older masters like Keith Jarrett and Mary Lou Williams.

Gill leads a tribute to Mary Lou Williams, the great, unsung godmother of bebop and modern jazz piano, with an all-star cast of local cats: Marshall Keys on sax, Kenny Rittenhouse on trumpet, Herman Burney on bass and Kelton Norris on drums.
