Piano Jazz With Marian McPartland
Piano Jazz With Marian McPartland Wed, Mar 21st from 9:00PM - 10:00PM
Earma Thompson
For more than 50 years, Earma Thompson (1923 – 2009) was a constant on the Chicago jazz scene. She was recognized as the reigning queen of Windy City jazz but spent most of her career as a dependable and accomplished side person. In her 80s Thompson released her first albums as a leader, including 2004’s Just in Time, which debuted shortly before her 2005 appearance on Piano Jazz. In this session, Thompson showcases her elegant, bluesy style on Back at the Chicken Shack before joining McPartland for Lullaby of the Leaves.
