Interesting essays similar to stories she would tell on Piano Jazz. A nice mixture of humility and confidence. I will miss her.

I found it really, really interesting to get to know Marian McPartland through her own words. This is an audio book I keep in my phone. The only problem is that I found the first part more interesting. I'm now on the second half and it's hard to stay awake through the stories.
But she is under-rated and this a great way to get to know her.

This book is a collection of articles. Fun anecdotes about great jazz players and the nightclubs where they played. A peak into the 1940s and 1950s jazz scene.
