Allison Miller and Derrick Hodge present Soul on Soul: A musical tribute honoring renown pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams and her groundbreaking chorale masterpiece, Black Christ of the Andes. Miller and Hodge, both known for balancing tradition with innovation, have crafted a show that exemplifies the importance and influence of Mary Lou Willams’s body of music in the present day. Throughout her 70 year career Williams continually spearheaded new movements in Jazz. As Duke Ellington said, “Mary Lou Williams is perpetually contemporary.” Miller and Hodge have captured this innovative spirit in Soul on Soul, using imaginative instrumentation and modern approaches to harmony and orchestration.
