@allmusic : He’s among the most accomplished sight readers in jazz, and his flexibility and sensitive style have kept him extremely busy cutting sessions and working in various groups and styles ranging from swing to bebop.

@last.fm : By the age of 13 Jones was performing locally in Michigan and Ohio. While playing with territory bands in Grand Rapids and Lansing he met Lucky Thompson, who invited him to New York City in 1944 to work at the Onyx Club with Hot Lips Page.

@Discogs : Hank Jones recorded over sixty albums under his own name, and countless others as a sideman. He received the NEA Jazz Masters Award, was also honored with the ASCAP Jazz Living Legend Award and the National Medal of Arts.
