3/6 Lisa Mezzacappa
It’s hard to imagine the forward-looking jazz scene of the Bay Area without the tireless efforts of composer, bandleader, and bass player Lisa Mezzacappa. Her open approach and powerful sound serve as the backbone for an incredible range of musical projects, and her vision and enthusiasm as a curator and organizer help keep the creative pulse strong in a rapidly changing city.
3/13 Lorraine Geller
From her start with the Sweethearts Of Rhythm through the superb albums she co-led with her husband, saxophonist Herb Geller, pianist Lorraine Geller was a rising star of bebop in the 1950s. A tragically early death cut short what would have been a huge contribution to jazz, but the sparkle and invention of her playing has stood the test of time.
3/20 Connie Crothers
A Bay Area native, pianist Connie Crothers made her mark on the NY scene while studying extensively with pianist and theorist Lennie Tristano. After Tristano’s death, she remained one of the great missionaries of his vision, bending the rules of harmony and phrase until her death in August of 2016.
3/27 Nicole Mitchell
Award winning flutist Nicole Mitchell is one of the hubs of the creative modern jazz scene of Chicago. She has made her mark as a community leader as the first female president of the AACM, as an instrumentalist with a unique voice, and as a composer of complex and relevant new music.

3/7 3/2 Celebrating Betty Carter
We hear stories from alumni of “the school of Betty Carter”, an esteemed collection of singers bound together by the thrall of Carter’s titanic influence on jazz. One of the most powerful voices in the American musical tradition, her lasting legacy is celebrated by vocalist Charenee Wade along with many past members of Carter’s band through the years.
3/14 3/9 Catherine Russell at Jazz at Lincoln Center
Catherine Russell remembers her late mother, Carline Ray, with stories of her journey in jazz, coming up in the 1940s as a black woman, and a performance honoring the vocal jazz trio tradition.
3/21 3/16 Maqueque in Miami
Jazz Night in America heads to Miami, Florida to hear music of Canadian saxophonist/flautist Jane Bunnett and the all Cuban women band, Maqueque, at the Miami Downtown Jazz Festival.
3/28 Billie at 100
From 2015 at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Jazz Night in America marks the centennial of the birth of Billie Holiday with Grammy winner Cassandra Wilson showcasing her blues, country and folk-tinged delivery, highlighting the artistry of Billie Holiday.
piano jazz WITH marian mcpartland
Wednesday at 9 pm
One of the most popular stylists in contemporary jazz, pianist Ahmad Jamal has been a major force on the jazz recording scene ever since his 1958 live album made at Chicago’s Pershing Lounge. On this 1985 Piano Jazz, Jamal reprises two classics from that session— Poinciana and But Not for Me—in duet with McPartland. Jamal solos on Duke Ellington’s Come Sunday, and he and McPartland close the program with a final duet on Silent Night, Holy Night.
3/8 Judy Roberts
Pianist and vocalist Judy Roberts is one of Chicago’s best-loved musicians. She’s an imaginative and insightful pianist with an articulate touch, and her voice readily conveys many different moods. Since beginning her professional career at age 15, Roberts has traveled the world, gaining fans and garnering critical acclaim. She always keeps her audiences enthralled, as she did on this 2005 Piano Jazz, recorded in front of a live audience at WAMC in Albany, New York. She performs McPartland’s Twilight World, and the two get together for Gravy Waltz.
3/15 Joey DeFrancesco
Joey DeFrancesco was only 20 years old when he was McPartland’s guest on Piano Jazz. Hailed as the new hero of the organ, his stint with Miles Davis brought the classically trained keyboardist national attention. He has since gone on to release more than 30 albums and has earned multiple Grammy nominations. For this 1991 session, DeFrancesco switches to piano to play his own compositions and joins McPartland for Cherokee.
3/22 Carli Muñoz
Pianist Carli Muñoz’s musical journey has taken him from Puerto Rico to the studios and clubs of LA, and back to the island of his birth, where he owns his own jazz club. His musical career has taken a similar circular trajectory. Having started out as a jazz musician, he played with pop musicians such as the Beach Boys and Rickie Lee Jones before returning full time to his first love, jazz. On this 2007 Piano Jazz, he plays his own tune Mia and joins McPartland for Cole Porter’s So In Love.
3/29 Mose Allison
One of the most original and provocative musicians in jazz, pianist Mose Allison (1927 – 2016) was heavily influenced by the blues. The Mississippi native drew inspiration from Sonny Boy Williamson, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk to create jazz flavored by the blues, along with tastes of his own sardonic wit. On this 1988 Piano Jazz, Allison opens with one of his typically witty tunes, Someone’s Going to Have to Move. He and McPartland join forces on an old classic, Your Red Wagon.
