KJZZ staff and the Valley jazz community lost a true friend this week. Paul Anderson passed away unexpectedly Jan. 20.
Jazz master Hank Jones lived from 1917 to 2010 and played music for over 75 years. He was the oldest in his musical family, with brothers Thad and Elvin following in his jazz footsteps. Hear the eloquent lyrical style of pianist Hank Jones Monday night on the 9 O'clock special, and you'll be surprised at who he has played with.
