When pianist Frank Kimbrough was McPartland's guest in 1997, he was performing regularly with the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra at Visiones Jazz Club in New York, where he has been active on the jazz scene for nearly four decades. An educator and recording artist, Kimbrough was a founding member and composer-in-residence of the Jazz Composers Collective.

Charlie Watts & Tim Ries, 2006

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 12:21:59 -0500

Drummer Charlie Watts has been the heartbeat of the Rolling Stones for more than 50 years, though he has always had a passion for jazz and the blues. Saxophonist Tim Ries plays with the Stones, but as a true jazz journeyman, he's also worked with greats such as Maria Schneider, Maynard Ferguson, and Tim Woods. When Watts and Ries were on a break from the Rolling Stones' World Tour in 2006, they sat down with McPartland for an hour of jazz and rock, with Ries' arrangement of the Stones classic "Honkey Tonk Woman."

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."
