It was the third straight phone call home during which Mosaic Woman announced a death she had heard about. Marian McPartland had died. I had loaded my iPod with jazz by women and we own more music by Marian than any other artist. And there was Willow Weep for Me. So I headed out and sat in the green light. It was a live version and as the music faded and the applause arrived, Marian said, "Thank You." (video found!)
and thank you for being such a vital part of my path into jazz.
