The first lady of jazz piano, Marian McPartland joyfully celebrates her 80th birthday by getting together with a few friends - "Just Friends" like fellow renowned pianists Geri Allen, Dave Brubeck, Tommy Flanagan, Gene Harris, Renee Rosnes and George Shearing, that is - and recording this inspired collection of jazz piano duets. "In jazz, two pianos are usually one too many not when the second pair of hands belongs to Marian McPartland. As the host of National Public Radio's Piano jazz, the longest-running jazz program in the history of network radio, McPartland has played more duets with more different pianists than anyone in the history of jazz, and the fruits of her vast experience can be heard on JUST FRIENDS, in which six of her favorite on-the-air partners join forces to celebrate her 80th birthday...
