Jackie Cain.

One half of the jazz vocal duo Jackie & Roy, Jackie Cain was an icon in the cabaret world, with a smooth, feathery voice. Her ability to express a full range of emotions as a performer allowed her to traverse the broad landscape of American popular song.

In this 1999 episode of Piano Jazz, host Marian McPartland and bassist Dean Johnson join Cain for performances of "Wait 'Til You See Her" and "You Don't Know What Love Is."

Originally broadcast in the fall of 1999.
