Liz Magnes, 2001

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 12:00:00 -0500

In 2001 McPartland introduced Piano Jazz audiences to Liz Magnes, one of Israel's most dynamic and creative solo jazz pianists. Her signature style blends Eastern and Western influences, creating a World Music flavor. Magnes moved to New York in 2000, going on to perform coast to coast and dedicating much of her time to arts education. In this session, Magnes presents her percussive form on "Someone to Watch Over Me." She and McPartland team up for "Ain't Misbehavin'."

Eddie Palmieri with Rhythm Section

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 12:00:00 -0500

Virtuoso pianist, bandleader, and composer Eddie Palmieri has been called "the madman of Latin Jazz." His playing fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri. On this 1997 Piano Jazz, McPartland joins the band for an hour of Palmieri's powerful rhythmic compositions. Palmieri and his group perform a set including "La Comparsa" and "Beloro Dos." McPartland improvises a "Portrait of Eddie Palmieri."

Dizzy Gillespie, 1985

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 12:00:00 -0500

2017 marked the centennial of jazz giant Dizzy Gillespie (1917 – 1993). In a classic Piano Jazz from 1985, Gillespie discusses his work with Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk, demonstrates various rhythmic progressions, and shares his theory on Aretha Franklin's unique vocal phrasing. Inspired by the session, McPartland spontaneously creates two new compositions in Gillespie's honor: "For Dizzy" and "A Portrait of Diz." They perform several of Dizzy's tunes, including "A Night in Tunisia" and "In a Mellow Tone."

Pianist Don Pullen (1941 – 1995) was known for his melodic brilliance, swirling chords, and glissandos, and his kinetic, cascading piano attack could ignite any band.

Claudio Roditi, 1996

Integrating post-bop elements and Brazilian rhythmic concepts into his palette with ease, Claudio Roditi plays with power and lyricism. This versatility has kept the trumpeter and flugelhornist in demand as a leader, studio musician, and sideman. Having made his way from Brazil to the New York jazz scene in the 1970s, he was McPartland's guest for this 1996 Piano Jazz session. With McPartland at the piano, Gary Mazzaroppi on bass, and Roditi on his horn, the three dish up "I Remember April" and "Speak Low."

Ellyn Rucker, 1993

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 12:00:00 -0500

On this 1993 Piano Jazz, her versatility is evident when she performs Cole Porter's "Everything I Love," then McPartland joins in to play the title tune from one of Rucker's albums, This Heart of Mine.
