Hi: Marion McPartland is a treasure.
A few years ago she performed at Yoshi's in Oakland.
The highlight of that night went like this: "I think I'll play a little song Jimmy taught me which he learned from Bix...it goes like this"
Then she began playing "Singing the Blues."
A wave of emotion hit me: She was offering a direct link from Bix to the audience through her heart and hands.
That was a powerful musical moment.
