Very sad. I was fortunate enough to see Elvin multiple times when I was living near San Francisco. Unfortunately I never got a chance to see Hank play.

Sad news. I had planned to see him later this month at Birdland. Last of a family dynasty.

He was a giant, the last of its generation. You will be greatly missed, R.I.P. Mr.Jones.

Very nice article/obit in Yahoo news on Hank..........

Reading over the span of his 70 year career and who he played with and all his contributions along the way brings one closer to understanding the full impact of what he brought to the world of jazz music in particular. Another great musician gone:

Yes, it's a nice life article. As a matter of fact, it has been a sadly week with great losses.

Life goes on, c'est la vi, asi es la vida.

Sorry to hear of Mr. Jones' passing. That was a very nice article; he really lived his life.
Thankfully he left us with a gift of music to last everyones lifetime.
