bryn listens : hank jones

I'm away from email this week on a last minute excursion to Maui (yes!) and in an effort to get posts up in advance, I decided on a special week-long edition of Bryn Listens. You'll have a new song waiting for you every morning this week and the music will all be by jazz pianists.

These past few days, I've been listening to recordings of pianist Hank Jones, who died at 91 last week. Hank Jones is a legend and I can't count the number of times I've heard Ella Fitzgerald shout him out on stage. He's recorded with nearly everyone. I like this rendition of "Misty" in particular.

Enjoy the week and visit the 'buds each day for more listening.

Listen with me:

"Misty" by Hank Jones, Mads Vinding & Billy Hart
