Marian McPartland with Marie Marcus on Piano Jazz

Marie Marcus, a protégé of Fats Waller, was a remarkable player of stride and swing piano styles. A Boston native, she worked the major clubs on New York's 52nd Street, before establishing herself for decades on Cape Cod and Miami Beach. And her son, pianist Billy Marcus, is a prominent Bay Area musician today. This week's Piano Jazz brings us a 1983 visit with Marie Marcus joining Marian McPartland.
