I missed Marian McPartland’s birthday. Now, she’s 95 plus one day, and I wish her all the best. Here she is in 1955 with her Hickory House trio, Bill Crow on bass, Joe Morello on drums (courtesy of Steve Cerra’s Jazz Profiles), then in solo with her ballad “Afterglow” at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1975.
Happy birthday, McP. You’re a treasure.
