Marian McPartland Petition



‎94-year old MARIAN McPARTLAND, the First Lady of Jazz, has devoted over 75 years of her life to the jazz world as pianist, composer, mentor and host...
As the UK's (arguably) greatest jazz export and an American Icon I feel she is worthy of receiving the Kennedy Centre Honour.
Click on the link at the top of the page to sign the petition.
Lance.
Marian interviewed by Billy Taylor.
