The life, loves and music of Marian McPartland

Longtime fans of NPR’s “Piano Jazz” program know that host Marian McPartland is a wonderful jazz piano player, not to mention an elegant and insightful interviewer and host. But there’s so much more to this woman, who was born and raised in England, met her jazz musician husband touring for the USO in World War II, came to America and made her way in what was then a man’s world.

You’ll find all this and more between the covers of “Shall We Play That One Together? The Life and Art of Jazz Piano Legend Marian McPartland” by Seattle Times editor and writer Paul de Barros. Paul discusses his book tonight on “Well Read,” state public access channel TVW’s books and authors program. You can see him at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight, or you can watch it here:
