The eldest of the legendary Jones brothers (his siblings are drummer Elvin and trumpeter/composer Thad) and the first of the major Detroit jazz pianists to emerge after World War II (Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris, and Sir Roland Hanna followed), Hank Jones is a pianist's pianist - a towering beacon of swing, style, touch and taste. In these two Jones Concord Jazz sessions - Rockin' in Rhythm and Lazy Afternoon - the master pianist's expansive musical vocabulary, elegant swing and magical touch make for two utterly timeless recordings. "In Hank Jones's hands, you'll hear an absorption of the great spectrum of jazz styles. Don't label him. Just listen to the distinctive touch and musical vision that has emerged from all of that grand assimilation." - Ken Frankling, UPI Disc 1 Featuring: Hank Jones: piano, Fender Rhodes Ray Brown: bass Jimmie Smith: drums Disc 2 Featuring: Hank Jones: piano Dave Holland: bass Keith Copeland: drums Ken Peplowski: clarinet, alto sax
