Paradigm shift

Amazing how this old Southern Rock aficionado settled down every Sunday evening when Marian!s NPR show came on. For me musically, she induces a paradigm shift. James Lawson , Pauline, SC

The gift of beauty she gave to the word is a remarkable legacy.

Such a nice, friendly down-to-earth lady whom I met 25 years ago through IAJ International Art of Jazz out here on Long Island, Setauket. Loved her NPR programs.

I was sad to hear of Marian's passing. I met her in NYC at a jazz club with my boss, Roger Brousso. I was working in the record business at the time. May she rest in peace.

I had little interest in jazz when I discovered Marian on NPR.
I went out and bought a piano!
What a gutsy lady! RIP sweetheart

To my good friend Mary,thank you for so publicly sharing your mother with the world.What a gift she was to all us jazz fans and most certainly to you. She's tipping the ivory in heave now. May your loss be lifted by the joy she brought to so many.

Elegant, understated, collegial, delightful... the consummate piano artist. Marian McPartland's music is our usual choice after work and over dinner. We are sad to lose her presence in the musical community and we hope for the comfort of her friends and family.

I grew to love the format of Piano Jazz with Marian McFarland. She was true to herself no matter who the guest. She is incomparable.
