FILM: In Good Time: The Piano Jazz of Marian McPartland. The brilliant musician/composer Marian McPartland (1918–2013) may be best known for hosting the long-running NPR program “Piano Jazz.” Born in the UK, she came to New York in 1948, quickly establishing herself in the male-dominated jazz world as a pianist with flying fingers and the musical wit to match. In Good Time finds McPartland at 93, reflecting on her life and still writing tunes, improvising, and performing with the likes of Billy Taylor, Renee Rosnes, and Dave Brubeck. • Huey. 2011. 85 m. NR. US. Films by Huey.
PERFORMANCE Renee Rosnes will give a half-hour jazz piano performance accompanied by Todd Coolman on bass.
