Tue, 23 May 2017 12:00:00 -0400

For more than thirty years, pianist and composer Joyce DiCamillo has led her own trio, which critics hail as "a compact unit that breathes almost as one." A dedicated educator, DiCamillo appears in high schools and universities around the country and is a model for women in jazz. On this Piano Jazz from 2000, she demonstrates her considerable keyboard talents on "If I Should Lose You." DiCamillo and McPartland join forces for a rendition of "What Is This Thing Called Love."

T.S. Monk, 1995

Tue, 02 May 2017 12:00:00 -0400

Percussionist T.S. Monk was born into the world of jazz. As the son of Thelonious Monk, his home was the gathering place for musicians such as Art Blakey, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Max Roach, who gave him his first pair of drumsticks. An accomplished musician, T.S. has charted his own course as a composer, arranger, and melodic drummer. In 1995 he and McPartland dedicated this Piano Jazz set to Thelonious, performing classics such as "'Round Midnight," "Mysterioso," and "Straight, No Chaser."

On this Piano Jazz, Cavallaro solos on his own arrangement of "Cole Porter Melody" and joins McPartland for a piece entitled "Lover."

Regina Carter, 2003

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 12:00:00 -0400

Jazz violinist Regina Carter is one of today's most original and daring musicians. Classically trained, Carter grew up in Detroit, where she absorbed all the music that Motown had to offer. While in high school Carter became inspired when she discovered jazz violinists such as Noel Pointer, Ray Nance, and Eddie South. On this 2003 Piano Jazz, Carter brings her stellar technique and infectious energy to bear when she joins McPartland for "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and "The Music Goes Round and Round."

Internationally hailed as the greatest vocalist to come along in decades, Nnenna Freelon exudes both class and sophistication. Her soulful style consists of fresh interpretations of classic standards. A six-time Grammy Award nominee, in 2014 she starred in the critically acclaimed show Georgia on My Mind: Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles in Las Vegas. On this 2002 Piano Jazz, Freelon surprises McPartland with a lyric to her original tune "Threnody."

Dorothy Donegan, 1983

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:00:00 -0400

This week Piano Jazz remembers NEA Jazz Master Dorothy Donegan (1922 – 1998) with an early session from 1983. Donegan's technical command of the piano was nothing short of breathtaking, and she was known for her onstage antics and flamboyance. In the house with McPartland, she attacks the piano—hammering away with her elbows and knuckles on "Darn That Dream" and "Stormy Weather." McPartland and Donegan play two pianos on "Lullaby of Birdland" and "Rosetta."

Mose Allison, 1988

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:00:00 -0400

One of the most original and provocative musicians in jazz, pianist Mose Allison (1927 – 2016) was heavily influenced by the blues. The Mississippi native drew inspiration from Sonny Boy Williamson, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk to create jazz flavored by the blues, along with tastes of his own sardonic wit. On this 1988 Piano Jazz, Allison opens with one of his typically witty tunes, "Someone's Going to Have to Move." He and McPartland join forces on an old classic, "Your Red Wagon."
