Hank Jones - Jazz Pianist of Ella Fitzgerald/John Coltrane Fame Dies Age 91


The jazz pianist/composer Hank Jones has died at age 91 at a New York City hospital Sunday night following a brief illness... His 70-year career includes having worked as Ella Fitzgerald's pianist. He also is a footnote in U. S. Presidential history since he was Marilyn Monroe's accompanist when she sang "Happy Birthday" to President John F. Kennedy. Jones won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009 as well as being a recipient of the National Medal of Arts given to him by President George W. Bush in 2008. Check out all the details here from the Associated Press article.
