The first lady of jazz piano, Marian McPartland, holds court at Joe Segal’s Jazz Showcase in Chicago in a rollicking jazz piano tour de force. Joining Marian is Chicago’s own jazz piano master, Willie Pickens—a veteran of the groups of Elvin Jones and Eddie Harris. One of jazz’s best kept secrets, the highly underrated Pickens' potent piano pyrotechnics add a healthy measure of good-natured heat to the proceedings, providing the perfect complement to Marian’s always razor sharp musical wit and encyclopedic jazz piano vocabulary. Captured live, Marian and Willie’s inspired jazz piano duo performances are perfectly balanced with insightful solo excursions by both piano masters, making Ain’t Misbehavin’ an instant jazz piano classic.
