< Previous Page


"McPartland sure knows how to illuminate a line with lean poetic phrasing," reviewer Robert L. Daniels wrote. "There is wisdom in her fingers."

NPR Music and South Carolina ETV Radio, which produces "Piano Jazz," were paying tribute to McPartland on air and online Wednesday, the station said.

"Every week for 34 years, Marian seduced her guests and her audience with her tremendous wit, compassion and musicianship," said Anya Grundmann, executive producer and editorial director of NPR Music.

In 2007, the Kennedy Center named McPartland a Living Jazz Legend. Among her many recognitions, she was named an NEA Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2000.

Funeral arrangements were not immediately available.
