Farewell to our friend and mentor, Marian McPartland

Date: 
Friday, September 20, 2013 - 6:00pm

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." As Washington Post critic Mike Joyce says, she was "reminiscing in tempo." With her trio.

JazzSet host Dee Dee Bridgewater tells us about Marian as a “proper English girl,” young New York pianist, busy octogenarian performing artist, and Marian at home.
