Marian McPartland’s “Piano Jazz”
Winner 1983 | South Carolina Educational Radio Network
For four years, Marian McPartland has invited the world’s leading jazz pianists, from Eubie Blake to McCoy Tyner, into our homes. Composer, teacher, and a celebrated pianist herself, Ms. McPartland has a flair for interviewing which would be the envy of most professional broadcasters. In a breezy conversational style, her guests freely discuss their craft and career influences. But the heart of the program is the interplay between host and guest at the keyboard, which results in entertaining, inventive, often electric sessions. For presenting outstanding performers in a warm and engaging format, a Peabody to Marian McPartland’s “Piano Jazz”.
