NORAH JONES and MARIAN McPARTLAND
Piano Jazz 2003 [no label, 1CD]

Live on NPR Radio, New York, NY; January 14, 2003. Excellent FM broadcast.

Thanks to mottsmcg for sharing the show at Dime.

Marian McPartland passed away on August 20, 2013. She was 95. In this article by Nate Chinen in The New York Times, Norah Jones remembers appearing on Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland.

Ms. Jones, 34, first appeared on “Piano Jazz” shortly after releasing her debut album, “Come Away With Me” (Blue Note), which earned eight Grammy Awards. “It made me happy because I had listened to Marian for so long,” she said. “My mom and her ended up becoming friends, writing letters for the last 10 years…”

“I was actually on her show twice. I like how she would play one song herself, one of the artist’s songs. She did that with me; she played “Don’t Know Why” and completely reharmonized it. And she’ll let you play something, and then you get to play together.”

“I was really nervous, but I wasn’t nervous about her not being cool. She was just the most sweet, welcoming, motherly sweetheart: polite, very British, but very warm. I remember her smile after we would finish a tune. You can kind of hear it on the radio. She says something like “Uh! That was marvelous,” and you could see it on her face. It was nice, after hearing those Marianisms on the radio, to be the recipient of one.”

  3. this past saturday.. after austin city limits there was a show called live from the artists den. the featured artist was norah jones. it was a relatively new show i believe from a couple of months ago. i didnt bother posting the info on here in time for people to know about it because i wasnt sure anyone really cared about her. im sure that the show can be found on youtube. it was a full hour length show. i checked for the full item just now on youtube and i dont see it all at once anywhere but i do see bits n pieces of it. while there i see the itunes festival she did at 95mins.

  21. two talented gracious women. thanks bigo.

    By barth on Oct 22, 2013

  22. would it be possible just once, for one day that everyone would just post about the music and not about darth? I mean I don’t know the guy and I don’t always care a whit about what he shares - but its just such a time and energy suck - maybe everyone could let it go for a day and maybe he could just not reply if they do - everyone sounds like little kids on the f-ing playground - I just wish you would all take your balls and go home and listen to some music instead

    By dwight on Oct 22, 2013

  23. Amen dwight!!!

    “its all about the music man, just the music!”

    By Jerry's Finger on Oct 22, 2013

  24. get darth to shut up and this place return to a regular garden of eden.its always quiet when he stays away.

    By speedboy on Oct 22, 2013

  25. Amen, speedboy. We can try again to ignore him, difficult as it is, that seems to work fairly well too.

    Many of us here are collectors who want the exact details about our music. I see nothing wrong with people correcting his mistakes with authentic sources. That usually leads to darth trying to vindicate himself with long winded comments that lead to counter-responses, and on, and on. His response should be ignored, because if the source cited is indeed credible, no one here except darth would try to extricate himself from the error. Anyone who checks the source provided will see that darth is wrong and he’s prolonging the discussion for whatever odd reason.

    I’m sure his supporters are appalled by his comments over the last two days about issues where he was undeniably wrong. I do find it to be ironic that several people who never post here have suddenly come out in support of darth’s behavior at one of his worst moments. Or perhaps it’s just one entity with several names?

    Ignore darth. Do the best you can. It’s not about him.

  26. IS MY OL BUDDY IN TROUBLE AGAIN ? LOL

    By dropkick sarge on Oct 23, 2013

  27. Do any of you read the stuff you write before you post? Do any of you do irony? You are using names like ‘IGNORE DARTH’ and then write whole diatribes about how you should all ignore him?!

    You also seem to think HE’S in trouble?

    You REALLY want it quieter?

    You also want to play games like who got here first!?

    Just PRICELESS!

    I’m an apologist for no-one and support all of your rights to rant n rave here. It’s hilarious!

    BTW Thanks ‘BIG O’ for the astonishingly beautiful Norah Jones and Marian McPartland broadcast. REALLY lovely stuff

  36. barth- thanks for the link and info, that’s a great interview and photo! i’ve seen this reported on other sites, but they’re far inferior to what you provided for us. i hope people who aren’t familiar with the everly brothers will seek out their music.
