BBC Radio 3’s Composer Of The Week (18-22 November) on the under-appreciated pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams was a fascinating and moving five hours on her remarkable life and music.
It was a model of jazz broadcasting and intelligently presented by Donald MacLeod.
Let’s hope there’ll be more jazz composers of the week on Radio 3 in future.

Radio 3’s Mary Lou Williams broadcast is still available as at 12 December 2019 on the BBC website
