  • doksan yaşında hala aktif olarak çalan, cannonball adderley & miles davis'in -içinde o unutulmaz autumn leaves'i barındırdığı- somethin' else'inden the great jazz trio'ya; ella fitzgerald, charlie parker, nancy wilson ve johnny hartman'ın albümlerine kadar geniş bir yelpazede yer alan caz piyanisti.

    duygusal, derin, dokunaklı ve pürüssüz tonlara sahip hank jones, günümüzün yaşayan en büyük caz piyanistlerinden biri olup yine bir başka büyük usta oscar peterson'ın ölümünün ardından the oscar peterson trio'nun belkemiği olarak piyanoda yer almış; kusursuz stilini bizlerden esirgememiştir. ayrıca, kanımca caz standartlarını mccoy tyner ile birlikte en iyi yorumlayan be-bop piyanisti, yine kendisidir.

    unutmadan, küçük kardeşleri de büyük caz ustalardır. (bkz: elvin jones) (bkz: thad jones)
