October/November 1980 Japanese concert tour program
Original concert program book lavishly produced for the Hank Jones Trio’s 13-date Japanese tour during October and November 1980, with saxophonist Sonny Stitt as special guest. Besides the leader himself, the trio featured bassist George Duvivier and drummer and singer Grady Tate. During the late 1970s and the 1980s, Jones continued to record prolifically, as an unaccompanied soloist, in duos with other pianists (including John Lewis and Tommy Flanagan), and with various small ensembles. In 2005, Jones was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College of Music at 20th anniversary of jazz education at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy. He died on 16th May, 2020, aged 91.
