In My Life

In My Life

by Marian McPartlandMarian McPartland




Pianist Marian McPartland displays her versatility throughout this reflective and generally thoughtful CD on such selections as the Beatles' "In My Life," John Coltrane's "Red Planet," Ivan Lins' "Velas," and Ornette Coleman's "Ramblin'." Despite the diverse repertoire, McPartland's own flexible style shines through and her individual musical personality is felt in each song. Altoist Chris Potter makes the trio a quartet on half of the selections and he uplifts the session a bit. McPartland's closing wistful solo piano version of "Singin' the Blues" (dedicated to her late husband, cornetist Jimmy McPartland) should not be missed.
