These two sets, recorded mere months apart in 1979, are classic examples of Marian McPartland’s multifarious jazz piano artistry. Disc One, the studio recording A Portrait of Marian McPartland, offers us an intimate view into Marian’s colorful and spellbinding musical world. A few months after recording A Portrait of Marian McPartland, Marian took to the stage of the Concord Jazz Festival, resulting in At The Festival (Disc Two). This exhilarating live set presents to listeners another unobstructed window into Marian’s multifaceted artistry, revealing her unlimited energy, and boundless artistic depth and breadth. In both recordings we witness the quintessential jazz pianist in lively interaction with her trio mates (the abundantly swinging Jake Hanna and Brian Torff), and a featured special guest saxophonist—Jerry Dodgion on Disc One and Stan Kenton alumnus Mary Fettig on Disc Two. Whether transforming familiar standards with her sophisticated harmonic twists, or tackling modern Chick Corea compositions, “[Marian’s] playing is kaleidoscopic in its invention and unbounded in its subtle imagination.” (Billboard Magazine)
