Paul de Barros bio of Marian McPartland released this week

Seattle Times readers are very familiar with the name Paul de Barros. His byline appeared on jazz/folk/world music articles in the paper for years and years — until suddenly it didn’t. That’s because he went on hiatus to write a biography of jazz legend Marian McPartland (you know, she’s the one who created NPR’s “Piano Jazz” show — here’s a little video to remind you).

Well now de Barros is back, thankfully, writing and editing music stories. And his book, “Shall We Play That One Together?: The Life and Art of Jazz Piano Legend Marian McPartland” comes out tomorrow, Oct. 16, from St. Martin’s Press.

You can read a review of the book that we commissioned from an independent source — or catch one of these appearances by de Barros on the radio or in person:
