The American pianist Hank Jones could, spanning his 65-year career, always be counted on for a joyful presence on the jazz scene, playing sparkling piano solos that uplifted every group that was wise enough to hire him. This set of previously unreleased music from June 6, 1983 puts the spotlight of one of the most consistent geniuses in jazz history. This 1983 concert consists of nine jazz standards performed at Jazzhus Slukefter in Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen. Jones takes the lion's share of the solo spots, changing his style between that of a classical bebop pianist and other times swinging elegantly like Teddy Wilson. The masterful trio comes up with creative variations and give all the songs on the release rewardingly fresh treatments.
