JAZZforum: A New Look at Marian McPartland
Thursday, November 1, 2012
Author Paul de Barros discusses his just-published biography, Shall We Play That One Together?: The Life and Art of Jazz Piano Legend Marian McPartland. Though she is well-known as the award winning host of NPR's long-running Piano Jazz program, McPartland's remarkable career began in the 1930s in her native England and has involved performing, composing, teaching, and running her own record label. De Barros will discuss the book and read from it. An open Q&A session and book signing will follow. Recital Hall (Performing Arts Bldg. 46-West).
