Just think of all of the changes in Jazz and in popular music in general that Hank Jones got to witness first hand. The fact that he was a vital, truly outstanding contributor for most of SEVEN decades is awe-inspiring. I cannot think of many humans that can lay claim to such a feat in any form of human endeavor. Hank was one of those rare gifts to humanity that we should be profoundly inspired by.
