All in good time by Marian McPartland ( Book )
4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
McPartland is one of the most famous contemporary jazz pianists. Brought up in England, she married the jazz trumpeter Jimmy McPartland after World War II and then settled in the U.S., where she built her career. She is also an articulate, knowledgeable, and entertaining writer about jazz and this book collects the best of her articles, published over the years in magazines like Down Beat and Esquire. There are wonderful portraits of two famous pianists: Mary Lou Williams, hailed as one of the finest composers and performers of her era, an artist of great spiritual resources who brought order to the chaotic world of modern jazz ; and Bill Evans, renowned for his introspective and evanescent playing. Also profiled are two young bass players, Eddie Gomez and Ron McClure, then new to the scene but destined to have a lasting influence; and outstanding drummers Joe Morello (who began his career with McPartland and went on play with Dave Brubeck) and Jake Hanna (who played with Woody Herman as well as with several small groups). Together, these descriptions of famous musicians -- almost all of whom McPartland has played with -- give the reader a special insight into how a jazz rhythm section meshes and functions
