JAZZ | 'A Portrait of Marian McPartland' 

Marian McPartland (1918-2013) was a nationally-known jazz giant, but she also had a special relationship with the Eastman School of Music. The school will honor McPartland in a concert featuring Tony Caramia, professor of piano, and Krista Seddon, who is not only a superb pianist but was also McPartland's transcriber and copyist. Selections will includes tunes by McPartland, like "A Delicate Balance" and "A Portrait of Bix," along with tunes by her favorite composers (Alec Wilder, Duke Ellington, and Mary Lou Williams) and even a tune by Ornette Coleman to remind us of how adventurous McPartland could be.

Tony Caramia and Krista Seddon will perform "A Portrait of Marian McPartland" on Monday, July 17, at Hatch Hall, Eastman School of Music, 433 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. $10 (free with UR ID). 274-1100;
