Concord Jazz is proud to present Twilight World, by jazz legend Marian McPartland. Twenty-one albums in 29 years at one label is a feat unto itself - when combined with 29 years at the helm of Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, the longest running cultural program on NPR, you are marking an extraordinary achievement in jazz history. This auspicious date precedes by nine days the 90th birthday of the incomparable pianist and award-winning radio host, whose legacy of achievement and advocacy on behalf of up-and-coming artists has long established her as an invaluable figure in modern culture.

Recorded with her longtime associates, bassist Gary Mazzaroppi and drummer Glenn Davis, Twilight World is a supreme addition to a catalog already rich with historically and musically significant recordings.

Mixing familiar standards and original material, Twilight World exemplifies the classic values of interpretive performance, in which McPartland demonstrates the elusive art of serving the song through improvisation with her unique combination of feeling, invention, and experience. Pianist and frequent Piano Jazz guest Bill Charlap has said that, "MM is a harmonic genius. Her singular musical voice encompasses the past, present and future of jazz." Her facile touch is present throughout this sumptuous ballad-centric program.

"I'm so happy to have done this album," she says. "It's nice to have something you're this happy with at this stage of life."
