Marian McPartland at the Movies - Director interview

Pianist Marian McPartland is a familiar and beloved presence on public radio stations across the country, due to her long-running program Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz. Documentary filmmaker Huey spent four years chronicling McPartland's life and music, including the radio show and her compositions in the film In Good Time, The Piano Jazz of Marian McPartland.

The film is showing in Rochester tonight (Friday June 29th) at 8pm at the The Little Theatre as part of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Check out my interview with the director, Huey.

(Hope you've had a chance to enjoy some of the music at the jazz festival -- let's share notes when everything settles down!)
