Tommy Flanagan and Hank Jones – More Delights – Used LP
Sleeve: VG (corner cut out)
1978 date from these two Detroit legends, just two pianos. Stereo separates the pianos so one comes through right speaker, and the other through the left. (I saw Flanagan play in Detroit a few years ago, and it was pretty amazing, bar date with him and the small combo on the floor surrounded by a small crowd, maybe one of my first jazz shows and really one of very few but because he passed in 2001, my "a few years" must be an understatement...the other day in the 1990s...time slips away.) -- winch
"Particularly remembered as an accompanist of Ella Fitzgerald and player on Giant Steps by John Coltrane, [Flanagan] played on a number of critically acclaimed recordings, such as Sonny Rollins' Saxophone Colossus, The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery , and Art Pepper's Straight Life.
"The oldest of the Jones brothers, Hank Jones has been a supreme accompanist and underrated soloist. 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. He's worked with vocalists, played in big bands and done many solo, trio, and combo dates. Born in 1918 in Mississippi, Jones moved with his family to the Detroit area while still a child."
