College presents ‘In Good Time,’ a film on jazz legend Marian McPartland, by Huey

Saint Joseph’s College is proud to host Maine filmmaker Huey (James Coleman) and a screening of his film “In Good Time: The Piano Jazz of Marian McPartland” on April 11 at 7 p.m.                       

A feature-length documentary, “In Good Time” examines the life and career of jazz legend and NPR program host Marian McPartland. Originally from England, McPartland moved to America in 1948 and immediately set off on what would become a life as a leading female musician and composer in a male-dominated jazz world.

“In Good Time” follows McPartland, 95, over four years through interviews, live performances and discussions with other leading musicians, like Elvis Costello, Diana Krall and Dick Hyman, among others.

With over 30 years of experience, Huey’s films have been shown at film festivals throughout the U.S., on PBS and on television in Europe. He is the recipient of a fellowship in film from the Maine Arts Commission. He is a founder of the Maine Student Film and Video Festival and was its director for 31 years.

“In Good Time,” Huey’s prize-winning documentary film, will be preceded by an introduction by Huey and will be followed by a Q & A. The event is free and open to the public and takes place in the Viola George Auditorium in Harold Alfond Hall on Saint Joseph’s Standish campus.
