Information

Pianist Hank Jones played with virtually every major figure in the music, from trumpeter Hot Lips Page to saxophonist Joe Lovano. His encyclopedic work both as sideman and leader encompassed the history of jazz, and earned him a Lifetime Achievement Grammy. Sensitively accompanied by world-class bassist Isla Eckinger and drummer Kurt Bong, Have You Met This Jones exemplifies his consummate taste, urbane sense of swing, and sophisticated chording. There’s a perfectly mixed bag of tunes ranging from two Jones originals to such classic standards as Rogers and Hart’s There’s a Small Hotel, Ellington’s I Got It Bad…, and Charlie Parker’s classic Now’s the Time. One of the great piano stylists at his best.
