Marian Mcpartland QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Although I do feel that with a show like ours we ourselves are getting a lot more young listeners at concerts.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
And I get so many records by people I've never heard of playing their own original tunes and not one single standard.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
As long as I can still be on my own and do my own thing and be working full time, it's great.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
At the risk of being a fuddy-duddy I don't have a computer; I don't have e-mail; and I really don't need something in my house that I would be sitting in front of for hours.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
Baldwin is sort of getting to be a bit funny. I don't know what happened, but a few years ago they suddenly went bankrupt and Gibson bought the whole outfit. Since then they haven't seemed to be doing an awfully good job of providing pianos.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
Boy, I'm just quietly doing my thing, and I hope they'll look around and get my record out.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
By the way, I got a Grammy, which was a big thrill.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I did not appear at that gross affair they have. You know, they always have the jazz people separate as if they're not quite up to the standard of the big concert. So I didn't go to the big concert. If I had, I guess I would have received the award there, but I didn't want to go to that.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I have a West Coast rhythm section and a New York rhythm section. I've got them spread out all over the place.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I like minor tunes.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I love to play in the different keys like B or F sharp, or keys that most people don't play in, because they have a better resonance or something. I'm really not fond of F and C. I just stay away from those if I can.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I need to get up and walk around and keep my knees from getting bad, which is what's happening.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I would really hate to have e-mail. It's bad enough with all the mail I get.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I'd just as soon be on a good Steinway or Yamaha just as well.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I'm not too fond of changing things into waltzes, but sometimes that works.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I'm trying to get the record that I made at my birthday party last year, trying to get that out, and the lawyers are diddling around with it and it probably won't be out until next year. I don't know.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
I've got arthritis in my fingers.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
It's awful to have to, but I've started thinking about that, you know. 86. I'm thinking, well, maybe I might make it to 90. At least I'd like to have my brains.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
My hands look terrible but I can do anything I want to do, so, you know, I just think I'm playing all around with more good taste and not dashing up and down the piano.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
Nowadays it seems to me nobody takes trouble about anything, especially writing songs.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
So I have a friend who works for me once a week. She's got e-mail, so anybody that must send an e-mail, they send it to her and she faxes it to me. Sounds like a long way of doing things, but it works for me.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
So if I think of something in my head I don't have to do it. If I can't do I don't do it, I do something else.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
That's something Mary Lou Williams used to tell me: If you're not feeling right about what you're doing and you play a minor tune it all comes back, falls into place. I don't know if that's true, but I do it.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
The house is in turmoil with records on every space. In the kitchen and in the dining room is covered with records. I don't have a big enough house to accommodate everything.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
There are a million good tunes.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
Well it's because the record companies are pumping away with their commercial stuff. I think it's a shame.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
Well, because people are getting dumber and dumber and the music they put out for them to listen to is dumb music.
Quotation of Marian Mcpartland
Well, I'm bringing what I like to call my Chicago rhythm section: They both live there and those are the guys I use when I'm in the mid-west.
