Remembering Hank Jones

Pianist Hank Jones passed away on May 17, 2010.

During a career which spanned seven and a half decades, Hank Jones played with nearly all of the greats. His lyrical piano can be heard on thousands of solo and group recordings. He is also the pianist who accompanied Marilyn Monroe during her famous birthday tribute to President Kennedy. Thank you for the beautiful musical legacy you left us Mr Jones. Rest In Peace.
