DVD: Hank Jones

Hank Jones, Jazz Master Class (Artists House). The pianist will be ninety at the end of this
hank-jones.jpgmonth. He was only eighty-six when he taught this class. Jones plays a solo concert, coaches and evaluates student pianists, charms his audience, chats with critic Gary Giddins and, in general, defies time. Together, the two DVDs in this package run more than five hours. They comprise one of a series of Artists House DVDs that capture producer John Snyder’s master classes at New York University and Loyola University in New Orleans. Others feature Phil Woods, Cecil Taylor, Clark Terry, Toots Thielemans, Benny Golson and Jimmy Heath.
