Remembering Marian McPartland

We remember "Piano Jazz" host Marian McPartland with a memorial program. For more than 30 years, composer and pianist Marian McPartland brought jazz into the homes of public radio listeners through her interviews and duets with some of the greatest musicians in the world. She composed piano pieces that have entered the jazz repertoire and songs—with lyrics by such stars as Johnny Mercer, Sammy Cahn, and Peggy Lee, that are considered part of the Great American Songbook. This program is hosted by Marian's longtime friend Murray Horowitz and features Marian's original compositions.
