Pamela Hines is a pianist and composer whose forte is a complex and engaging take on the structural components of jazz. She brings nuance and impressive technical ability to all the tunes she plays and, as a composer, draws out a theme from every musician she works with. In this Piano Jazz session from 2000, Hines performs her original tunes "Porridge" and "A Stone." Host Marian McPartland joins her for a few duets, closing the program with "Autumn Leaves."

Originally broadcast in the winter of 2000.
