Format: Audio CD
mr. jones is one of the most elegant stylists to ever take to the piano bench. he plays with fluid grace that swings gently, revealing the soul of the music presented. here, in a solo context, mr. jones truly shines. there is no distraction from sidemen or other soloists, just the straight ahead playing of mr. jones. he carries us through a set of standards with charm, inventiveness, and a style that evokes ellington but at the same time is informed by bop masters like monk, powell, or herbie nichols. this is a great jazz cd for a quiet evening by candlelight. enjoy!

This man has the great influence of Art Tatum and the lines of the best of the best bop players. This recording is really major. You can feel Mr. Jones as he uses colors from the whole pallette of jazz ( especially stride which is my favourite). He even has a senior moment when he goes to the lowered nine instead of the tonic to end one of the tunes. But that just shows how real Hank Jones is. He's in his eighties and still sounds better than all the young cats right now.

Solo piano and Hank Jones-Need I say more?. Jones's playing is without pretence and true to the essence of musicianship. Listen to his wonderful voicings layered with his trade mark bop runs. My favourite is his solo on Toots Thielemann's waltz "Bluesette". A fantastic album.

My favorite aspect of Hank Jones's playing is his sweet and romantic touch. When I listen to him play, I feel like I'm hearing a man who has an unbeatably hopeful outlook on life despite the horrific hardships he's experienced. I get something very personal from him that I don't get from any other jazz pianist. He isn't a virtuoso player in the way someone like Art Tatum or Oscar Peterson is, but the direction his musicianship goes is delectable to listen to; he is incredibly inventive with his harmonies and uses them to give the melodies unforgettable colors and provide context for really interesting improvisations. To me, this album personifies his strengths the most.

Simply put, every track on this album is great, but my favorite is his reworking of "The Very Thought of You." His right hand delicately and gracefully gives us this sweet melody in the upper register of the piano, while he introduces splendid harmonic substitutions to give it even more color. It is so spacious and introverted that it evokes a profound longing.

Jones knows how to deliver a personal touch on any standard he plays with his harmonic colors. Even the often-played "What Is This Thing Called Love?" is given a refreshing makeover. He takes his time to explore the harmonies when playing the melody, and his solos are well-informed by the changes he makes, giving us interesting textural changes rather than keeping it the same.

One thing that makes him unique is his embracing of Bebop music. A lot of pianists of his generation, including Oscar Peterson, preferred to stay with pre-bop jazz and the great American songbook, but not Hank Jones.
