RIP Hank Jones

Hank Jones Obit, NY Times 5/18/10

this man knew the piano like no one i can remember hearing. accompanying abbey lincoln, he made such magic of the complex harmonies between piano and singer, and somehow seemed to be supernaturally intuitive. what a sound!

i can’t say much more – hear for yourself.
