As a 14 year old child I saw Marian play. I have attended many concerts, but can't remember seeing a more beautiful and enchanting performance. She had the ability to fill a room with sparkling, inspired sound.

Marian's service to this planet over her lifetime is testament to all that is good in this world. Thank you. My thoughts are with her loved ones. R.I.P.

A few years ago, I was listening to my PBS radio station, and wondered who this person was that I was listening too. The more I heard, the more I liked this lady. I found that this lady was on weekly. At the end of the broadcast, I heard the name Marian McPartland. After listening, and learning SO MUCH, it is such a terrible day to hear of this great ladys' passing. All of our past jazz greats are waiting for her. What a jam session that will be occurring. My prayers for her family. I will always think of her while I'm driving on Sunday afternoons.

I was saddened to learn of M.M.'s passing yesterday. She brought countless hours of listening pleasures to me over the years. Condolences to her loved ones and may she rest in peace.

R.I.P. dear lady. I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to see her perform at Severance Hall in Cleveland in the '80s and to have enjoyed her music for so many years. What an accomplished and delightful human being.

For more decades than I care to remember, this old man has listened to and appreciated the unique talents of Marian McPartland. She certainly had a soul for jazz. One of the first women to successfully play in what was, at the time, an all-male genre.
She very quickly earned the respect of
the "greats" of jazz. I loved her style. And her radio show on NPR was
top-drawer. We'll miss you, kid!

Marian always performed an interesting and entertaining show on NPR, and her insights into the jazz world were very astute, and made the genre easier to understand. May she rest in peace.

Your light of musical talent will forever shine in the hearts of those who loved to listen to your message in music. Your touch was a blessing from God.
Never met you, but listened to your music on many occasions.
Heaven is having a great concert with you there.
