The Music of Marian McPartland

Genre: 
Date: 
Wednesday, December 14, 2011 - 6:00pm

Of all McPartland's attributes, possibly the most underrated is her ability as a composer. Her piano pieces have entered the jazz repertoire, and some of her songs -- with lyrics by such stars as Johnny Mercer, Sammy Cahn, and Peggy Lee -- are part of the Great American Songbook. Guest host Murray Horwitz leads this exposition through some of her most beautiful works, with performances by Cleo Laine, Sarah Vaughan, the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra -- and, of course, Marian herself.
