This 2003 Piano Jazz session with guest Sir Roland Hanna (1932 – 2002) was recorded before a live audience at the 2002 Tanglewood Jazz Festival. A subtle and insightful pianist, Hanna was a superb two-piano partner, as evidenced by his and Marian McPartland's performances of "I Get A Kick Out Of You" and "Blues In The Closet." In this session, Hanna uses his solid sense of rhythm as a springboard into exciting explorations of melody and harmony. He shows off his skill as a composer with his own "Portrait Of John Lewis."
