English artist Marian McPartland arrived in America in 1948 and established herself as a leading musician in the male-dominated jazz world. Now 93, McPartland tells her own story—as a musician, composer, and host of National Public Radio’s Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz—through interviews filmed over four years. In Good Time features McPartland’s own harmonically-rich compositions and piano improvisations. With Dr. Billy Taylor, Elvis Costello, Dave Brubeck, Diana Krall, Bill Frisell, Nnenna Freelon, Renee Rosnes, Dick Hyman and many others. Featuring a special film introduction and reading from Paul de Barros, author of the new biography 'Shall We Play That One Together?: The Life and Art of Jazz Piano Legend Marian McPartland.'
