in memoriam Hank Jones (1918-2010)
  
On 2nd of December 2010, one of the last legends of classical jazz, pianist Hank Jones was scheduled to play at the Wiener Konzerthaus (Vienna, Austria) with his trio. Unfortunately, he is no longer here to keep that date. Hank Jones passed away in New York on 16th of May 2010 at almost 92 years of age. Kurt Prohaska, who had a 23 year long unique musical and personal friendship with his role model and mentor, will be devoting his JAZZLAND concert to the person who made a name for himself as the "pianist's pianist”. Under the title “Have You Met Hank Jones?“ the Kurt Prohaska Trio will be giving an insight into the life and life’s work of one of the greatest and at the same time most loveable and modest musicians in jazz history.
