Quotes & Awards

  • “She has done her studying from the inside: as one of the few working jazz musicians to write about the music with any frequency, she offers a perspective on the men and women who play jazz for a living that seldom finds its way into print.”

    New York Times

  • “Marian McPartland is that rare combination, a first rank jazz musician who also can write about her music, its milieu and musicians…[She] writes with wit, acumen, and vivacity.”

    San Diego Union Tribune

  • “This is an audio treasure…It’s clear that it’s been a joyful life as McPartland reads essays and remembrances over the decades—her joie de vivre and true immersion in jazz and its great artists come through loud and clear…the overall effect is like being invited to tea or bourbon with a savvy, kind, and talented lady of the arts.”
