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.

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.
