Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz
Fri December 20, 2013
Let It Snow: The Piano Jazz Holiday Show
Originally published on Fri December 20, 2013 6:00 am
Piano Jazz swings in the holiday season, as Marian McPartland and her guests from seasons past, present and future share favorite memories and unique musical performances of Christmas classics and original holiday tunes.
Over the years, McPartland has collected Christmas music from her Piano Jazz guests. The performances are usually recorded following a taping of the show — most are on-the-spot, off-the-cuff, unrehearsed takes. Many of these performances have been collected on three recordings, An NPR Jazz Christmas With Marian McPartland and Friends I, II and III, available through the NPR shop and select retailers.
