In concert from 2005 at the Kennedy Center, Marian tells stories, plays an Ellington medley and music by an unlikely assortment of composers from Jerome Kern to Ornette Coleman, takes a request, and conducts a great show as always, closing with a personal interpretation of "When the Saints Go Marching In."
