In Memoriam: Marian McPartland

McPartland interviewing Ramsey Lewis, 2009

Marian McPartland (1918-2013)

Musician, author, radio host

You could always hear the smile in her voice as she talked to her guests on Public Radio's Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz which ran from 1978 - 2011.

The heaven's are ringing with some great additional piano music this weekend.

Here's a video of Marian with Billy Taylor and George Shearing:
