NPR Piano Jazz 1 1979-1989

NPR Piano Jazz - - A SESSIONGRAPHY  part I 1979 - 1989

Highly recommened


No generations' gap - Marian and Norah
(hope the owner of copyright won't mind to see this here)

compiled by Dr. Michael Frohne

Let's start with some explanational words. Although there are some information in the
www, no real research on this subject has been done yet. This is the start -
hopefully it will be continued - as long as I'm not dead I will do the job. Being 70 now, days are getting shorter.... But one of the next generation of jazz fans will continue - I'm sure.

The SESSIONGRAPHY - I like to call it like that because only a few records and lp's were issued and so this is a better expression than discography - contains in order of first broadcast date:

correct recording dates
correct dates of first broadcast
correct dates of re-broadcasts
personnel - without mentioning host and piano player Marian McPartland
all titles with composers given in brackets
information about outtakes
all lp and cd issues - covers will follow soon

In some cases the data has to be verified - so feel free to send corrections.

If titles bear " " signs I have the program in my collection as CD-Rom. If there are no
signs I still search for it. In most cases for these I added the original covers of the shows broadcast on NPR. I have more covers but they will be insert when I receive the broadcast.

Be aware that the Frank Zappa entry is a April's fool joke.

There are still many programs with unknown artists (I will do my best to fill the gaps). There are still some known programs with unknown dates. In both cases I cry for help.
