    Marian McPartland

    She just died at 95; a friend to all musicians and a great one herself.

    Peace Marian
    No, I'm not going to give you the answer to your question. I don't want to deny you the pleasure you'll receive when you figure it out yourself. -- Bill Evans talking to his brother.

    Piano Jazz was a great program.
    Marian was a knowledgeable and talented player. She was always humble and seeking to learn something new.
    Her love for the music and the musicians was always apparent. She showed deep respect for the tradition and openness towards emerging approaches. RIP Marian.

    I hope NPR will carry on with her format.

    Wow. Too greats over the last couple of days. I love "Piano Jazz." The irony is that yesterday I was listening to the program from 2010, in which Cedar Walton was the guest, and Bill Charlap was filling in for her. Perhaps he'll be the new host; I certainly hope they continue the show.

    I thought she had already stepped down and John Weber took it over. Maybe I'm wrong, but for some reason I thought that.

    I love Piano Jazz, and was sad to hear that she is gone. Wonderful player, interviewer, and human being. She will be missed.

    "By 1958, she was well enough known to be included in Art Kane’s famous Esquire magazine group photograph of jazz musicians, the subject of Jean Bach’s acclaimed 1994 documentary, “A Great Day in Harlem.” One of the few women in the picture, she stood next to her friend and fellow pianist Mary Lou Williams."

    FYI, there's an excellent documentary about her life, available here: In Good Time, The Piano Jazz of Marian McPartland - Films By Huey

    She was quite the musician and will be missed.
