Another superb interview, Marc. I always look forward to read your blogs during my lunch break. Keep em' coming! I think I've listened to every one of Marian's shows throughout the years.

(Denny Zeitlin, eh?)


Bill Evans could play the piano.

Sarah Razvi

Marc Myers can play a mean qwerty keyboard...

Chris Albertson

Another good interview. Did you know that Marian's first radio show was a weekly hour (11 PM Wednesdays) on WBAI in NYC? In 1966, when I suggested that she do the show, I had to talk her into it. She didn't think that was something she could do well. Well?

John P. Cooper

The Marian McPartland program with guest Carmen Cavallaro was unique! Early 90s, IIRC.

Ray Cole

Denny Zeitlin's first time on "Piano Jazz" was so great. I wish someone would release that show on CD. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
