Hank came from a musical family that included brothers Thad (trumpet) and Elvin (drums). He recorded over 60 records under his own name and countless others as a sideman.
I had the pleasure of seeing him play at Iridium in NYC about 15 years ago. Mr. Jones emerged from the backstage area/kitchen and the audience erupted into applause. Smiling broadly he glanced down at my table and whispered to me, “I haven’t even played anything yet” and winked.
Thanks for all the wonderful music Hank.
