Marian McPartland left British shores in her mid twenties to reside in the U.S.A. where she married a fellow jazz musician. She made a career for herself as a distinguished jazz pianist, originally playing mostly in trio, occasionally in larger groups, but latterly more as a soloist. This album (1991, in her seventies) exemplifies her great technical skill as a pianist and improviser. Although she flirted with several styles, including more avant garde music, she was most comfortable with style from "her youth". This programme of sixteen tunes beautifully played includes just a couple of original compositions otherwise its well known tunes from the "jazz standard canon". Marian plays with a classical touch and plays with a certain delicacy, the result of her training and temperment. She certainly isn't heavy handed, yet uses plenty of chords. The concert is beautifully recorded bu Concord, and I don't find the applause intrusive. Every track is a gem, but tracks such as Brubeck's "The Duke" standout.
Rewarding listening.

Format: Audio CD
Marian McPartland I am sure could never make a bad album, or even a dull one. Her piano playing and composing, whilst located for the most part, in the main stream lacks nothing in adventure, technique or ability to delight and entertain. So, when the listener gets hear M. McP playing solo in a fairly intimate concert environment, they should jump at the chance. This disc is a treat. Beautifully recorded, capturing all the liquid beauty of Marian’s ballad playing along with her crisp rhythmic left hand work, this CD is of, like many Concorde recordings,audiophile quality.

The programme mixes plenty of Ellington with a few rather nice originals (Marian’s ‘Twilight World’ is a beauty) and some familiar fare like ‘My Funny Valentine’ done with her usual combination of romantic feeling and assured technique. Unexpectedly, an Ornette Coleman tune, ‘Turn Around’ appears, but is not at all out of place in this company. At 16 tracks, no one tune outstays its welcome. Yes, Marian does improvise and embellish, but for her, melody and structure invariably come first.

In summation,this is a lovely album. Plenty of great tracks. One of my favourites has to be the rousing take on 'Things Ain't What They Used To Be' - great! Lovers of classy pianism should give this set a try.

Highly recommended.

HASH(0x91449228) out of 5 stars Mainstream solo piano at its best 6 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Few pianists would attempt to play a program that includes compositions by Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, Alec Wilder and Dave Brubeck. But Marian manages to pull it off in her own voice and with her own sense of elegance. The program of 16 tunes ebbs and flows perfectly, giving one a sense that Marian knows exactly how to pace her concerts. Duke Ellington's "The Clothed Woman" and "Theme from 'Piano Jazz'" (which gets its first extended treatment) show her openness to freer styles, while her own "Twilight World" and Wilder's "I'll Be Around" display a sensitive touch as well. Marian also displays her affection for more conventional Ellingtonia: "Prelude to a Kiss," Dave Brubeck's "The Duke," "Love You Madly" and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be." In short, this is as eclectic an exercise in mainstream solo piano as one is likely to hear. The sound is excellent, as it is consistently in Concord's Maybeck series.

HASH(0x914496cc) out of 5 stars Versatile Virtuosity! 20 May 2001
By Steven Eldredge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a huge fan of Marian McPartland, I admit that I am biased, but this CD is one of her finest achievements. Everything about it, from the wide-ranging choice of materials, to the sterling performances, the beauty of the piano used and the warm, resonant natural ambiance of the Maybeck Recital Hall add up to a recording I would recommend to anyone without hesitation. I have just been on a long road trip, and this CD was playing over and over in the car. Never got tired of it! Buy it!

HASH(0x914496b4) out of 5 stars Distracting clapping 10 Feb. 2009
By P. Gaillard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I hate to ruin the 5 star average for this wonderful CD, but I had a hard time getting past the *loud* clapping after each song and before the first (a total of 17 times!). Apparently the mikes were way too close to the audience, giving the CD listener a real jolt between those beautiful pieces, some of them played quite softly.

HASH(0x9144969c) out of 5 stars Inventive arrangements, brilliant technique 18 Oct. 2005
By C. M. Elsten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All of the pieces on this CD are available as note-for-note piano transcriptions, which I'm working through. Listening to McPartland play when you're familiar with the transcripts gives a fresh appreciation for her incredible technique and innovative arrangements. My favorite is her take on Ornette Coleman's "Turn Around," in which she magically turns a solo piano into an entire jazz trio.
HASH(0x91449768) out of 5 stars GOOD BUT NOT MEMORABLE (3-1/2*) 16 Feb. 2015
By David Keymer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Marian McPartland is a pianist possessed of a sunny personality and a great knowledge and tolerance for all kinds of music across jazz’s long history. Her formidable technique allows her to switch gears at the drop of a hat from single note lyricism to rich chordal passages and supporting walking bass lines that are vaguely reminiscent of stride or boogie (but more subdued). She doesn’t really sound like anybody else –mainly because most somebody elses can’t play as well, with as much fluidity and shifting of gears, as she can and does. Her default groove is a very tasty, refined late bop sound, enriched by her rich use of chorded passages. It’s difficult to find anything wrong with it but that doesn’t mean it always produces exceptional music. Her playing is always good. But it isn’t always memorable and that’s the case with this album. The selection of songs is admirable: seven ballads from the great age of popular ballad writing plus one of Alec Wilder’s fine ballads (‘I’ll Be Around’), Dave Brubeck’s ‘The Duke,’ Ornette Coleman’s blues, ‘Turnaround’, FOUR Ellington tunes (now that’s good taste!) and two originals by McPartland herself, one of them the theme from her radio show, Piano Jazz. All of the performances are short –three to five minutes- which means they follow pretty much the same format: a bit of doodling around leading into statement of theme, a few choruses of improv, during which the tempo usually heats up a bit, and then a return to the theme and out. I admire Marian McPartland a lot so I wanted to like this album better than I do. It’s good. It just isn’t good enough.
