Piano Jazz Xmas Tracks

Readers of this blog will know how much I love Marian McPartland and the show she hosted - Piano Jazz. I'm sure that if I'd actually met Marian I'd have fallen in love with her too! although, after reading the marvellous biography of Marian by Paul de Barros - Shall We Play That One Together? - I would have had strong competition.  This link has a duo with Marian and George Shearing doing Let It Snow. Listen to the chords she lays down on Good King Wenceslas!
Long Live Good Queen Marian!
