Marian swings in the holiday season with a special program of Christmas music! Along with her guests from seasons past, you’ll hear favorite memories and performances of yuletide classics and original holiday tunes. Guest artists include George Shearing, Tony DeSare and Dena DeRose.
McPartland's encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz standards, highly musical ear, involvement in over 60 years of evolving jazz styles, and rich experience blending with radio guests have led to a musical style that has been described as "flexible and complex, and almost impossible to pigeonhole". She is known as a harmonically and rhythmically complex and inventive improviser.
