About This Show
Virtuoso pianist and master composer Joanne Brackeen has been called "the Picasso of jazz piano." In her hands, the history of jazz is created and recreated as she floats seamlessly between traditional jazz and free play. Like McPartland, Brackeen has been a trailblazer for women in jazz. On this 2006 episode, the two friends get together on McPartland's "Ambiance" and John Coltrane's "Giant Steps."
