Thinking About Jazz     

(Saturday, 1-3pm)
Marian McPartland: Piano Jazz
Marian Marian Turner McPartland (3/20/1918-8/20/2013) was an English-American jazz pianist, composer, and writer.  After her marriage to Jimmy McPartland, she lived in the U.S. when not traveling abroad.  From 1978 to 2011 she hosted Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz, an NPR radio program.  In 1969 she founded Halcyon Records which produced albums for 10 years.  She received numerous awards including a Grammy for lifetime achievement, induction into National Radio Hall of Fame, NEA Jazz Master recognition and many others.  She has been a ground-breaking artist as champion for women in the arts, especially jazz.  In 2010 she was named a member of the Order of the British Empire.  Ellen Carter will bring this presentation on this most inspiring jazz master.

Jazz Night in D.C. on Fridays presents some of the area's finest jazz musicians in a lively presentation of classical, straight-ahead jazz.
