Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

This is an audio treasure, whether you’re a current fan of this beloved jazz pianist and her long-running public radio program or you’re new to her work. It’s clear that it’s been a joyful life as McPartland reads essays and remembrances over the decades--her joie de vivre and true immersion in jazz and its great artists come through loud and clear. Her soft London-influenced voice has made a friendly truce with an American accent--the overall effect is like being invited to tea or bourbon with a savvy, kind, and talented lady of the arts. The bonus CD with excerpts of McPartland’s interviews with such jazz greats as Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson is the topper.
