About This Show

Pianist Dave McKenna got his start as a teen working with Charlie Ventura and Woody Herman in the late 1940s and early '50s. He went on to work with Gene Krupa, Joe Venuti, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, Louis Armstrong, and Bobby Hackett, among others. But he preferred to play solo gigs in the small clubs and bars of his native Rhode Island. On this Piano Jazz, we remember pianist Dave McKenna. Marian McPartland invited Daryl Sherman to guest-host this remembrance, which includes clips from Piano Jazz with Marian and Dave in 1979 and 1994. Daryl also treats us with her renditions of "Rhode Island is Famous for You" and "Teddy Ballgame." Dave solos on "I'll Be Around" and joins McPartland for a duet of "Let's Get Away from It All."
