Last Jones Bros. Session Due in Sept.

Columbia and Eighty-Eight’s will release the Great Jazz Trio’s Someday My Prince Will Come-a recording featuring the final session that paired drummer Elvin Jones (pictured) and pianist Hank Jones-on September 14. The Great Jazz Trio-composed of brothers Elvin and Hank and bassist Richard Davis-intend this collection of 10 standards as a fond farewell to drummer Elvin, who died in May.

“This was our last session together,” Hank recalled. “Elvin and I recorded an album a few years earlier for Verve [1994’s Upon Reflection: The Music of Thad Jones -Ed.]. But we hadn’t done that many over the years really. Of course, Elvin had his own group, so our paths didn’t cross that much. But this time they happened to with Richard Davis on bass.”
