Mary Louise Knutson

Jazz pianist and composer Mary Louise Knutson has played alongside some of the genre's biggest names, in addition to pursuing a solo career on her own by the early 21st century. Over the years, the Minneapolis, MN-based musician has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby McFerrin, Dianne Reeves, Smokey Robinson, the Osmond Brothers, and Engelbert Humperdinck, among others, and during the '90s, was a member of the group Synergy (formerly Rupert's Orchestra). Knutson has also penned songs for other artists as well, including Prince's horn section, the Hornheads (for their 5 Heads Are Better Than 1 release), while her music was used in the documentary Wellington Lee: 60 Years of Artistic Photography. 2001 saw Knutson issue her very first solo disc, Call Me When You Get There, via her own record label, Meridian Jazz. The album (which featured additional contributions from bassist Gordon Johnson and drummer Marc Anderson) earned the pianist/composer many accolades, including a "Top New Instrumentalist of the Year" award from KWJL in Palmdale, CA, while a pair of songs ("How Will I Know?" and "Meridian") earned her awards from Billboard magazine. Additionally, Knutson teaches jazz piano and improvisation at Carleton College in Northfield, MN. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Beautiful, melodic and nice touch. Reminds of Bill Evans.

I first heard her playing with JAZZMN big band in the Twin Cities. She is so smooth and fluid. She doesn't always use common conventions in her playing, but when she does they are wonderfully executed. She also seems to excel with her dynamics. She's not a pounder as is so prevalent today. She impresses with her musical tact. I love her playing!

Kind of a cross between some of Gene Harris's more mellow stuff and Vince Guaraldi. Beautiful.

She is absolutely supurb, as is her album. She really should be much better known. Today is the first time I've ever heard of her and I've got LP's and CD's of jazz pianists too numerous to mention...Th a n k you Pandora

Why have we not heard this artist before now? Why is her name not more widely known to the jazz listener? (Great Stuff!)
