Acclaimed vocalist Stacy Sullivan, winner of the Nightlife, Bistro, and MAC Award for Outstanding Female New York Debut, pays tribute to one of the grand dames of jazz with the New York debut of “On the Air.”

Legendary jazz pianist Marian McPartland (1918-2013) left a body of work as a performer and composer rivaled only by her advocacy of the art form. As host of “Piano Jazz,” she led the longest running cultural program in the history of National Public Radio, interviewing and performing with the giants of 20th century jazz.  

“On the Air” weaves storytelling and performances of some of the most beloved works from the American Songbook into a fascinating portrait of an Englishwoman who became an American jazz tastemaker. Featuring music of Duke Ellington, Richard Rodgers, Stephen Sondheim, Willie Nelson, and, of course, Marian herself.
