Lest We Forget Vol. 10 / Keepin Up With The Joneses: Thad, Elvin & Hank

Lest We Forget Vol. 10 / Keepin Up With The Joneses: Thad, Elvin & Hank

Playing tracks by

Tommy Flanagan Trio, Thad Jones & Mel Lewis Quartet, Elvin Jones, The Jones Brothers, Thad Jones and more.

A short, fun and far from decisive look at three brothers from Detroit who came to change Jazz forever. Thad Jones is a personal favorite of mine and his work is so underappreciated it's near criminal. Of the three brothers he was undoubtedly the most well rounded - a composer, arranger, band leader, exquisite player and teacher. Elvin and Hank need no introduction, that said, I have always felt that Elvin's heights cast a shadow over his brothers, particularily Hank. In any case, I have tried to share some of their work that is less celebrated, but brilliant all the same. Long live the Jones Brothers!!!
