The oldest of the three illustrious Jones brothers (which include Thad and Elvin), Hank Jones was also the first of the great Detroit pianists (including Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris and Roland Hanna) to emerge after World War II although by then he had long since left town. Jones played in territory bands while a teenager and in 1944 he moved to New York to play with Hot Lips Page. He had ... Read more in Amazon's Hank Jones Store

5.0 out of 5 stars At his peak 30 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'll cut to the chase (to use a jazz term i think), this is one of Hank Jone's greatest CD's. I have over fifty CDs with Hank as a leader after he converted me to jazz piano in 1993 with 'Upon Reflection' which is another of his best.

If you're not familar with Hank Jones or jazz piano then try this - i'm sure most fans have this already. His playing on this CD as usual is not just great jazz (all jazz adjectives/verbs APPLY - swing, blues feel, pure improvisation etc) but has a grace and beauty that do things to you!

'For my Father' and 'The Oracle' are others on the list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 12 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, a piano player has to master these following styles; bebop, rock, gospel and last but not least...stride. Not only, does Hank Jones master these humble requirements, but he has lived through every one of them. He's had the privilege of watching jazz giants like Art Tatum, Fats Waller and Teddy Wilson at their best and "at Maybeck" we can hear all these legends combined with a vital, personal and respectable presence that can only be described as Hank Jones.

4.0 out of 5 stars classic jazz piano 6 Feb 2002
By Rob Watkins - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Van Damn 20 July 2004
By Winston Chea Langley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Hank Jones 5 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Solo Piano Album 2 Sep 2014
By Renato B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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. He demonstrates this not just with the harmonic and melodic content of his solos, but by performing two Thelonious Monk compositions, "Blue Monk" and "Round Midnight." His lyrical touch lends itself well to these pieces as he makes them his own.

In summation, I would say that anyone who wants to hear a refreshing and personal take on solo piano jazz should consider this one. It's not just for Hank Jones fans; I think it CREATES Hank Jones fans.
