You gotta go back to a time when Gregg Allman was sentient to find an artist carrying on his departed brother’s legacy with the soulful empathy that pianist Hank Jones brings to the compositions of Upon Reflection-The Music of Thad Jones. Third brother/drummer Elvin (with bassist George Mraz, who used to play with Thad) completes this classiest of reunions. And the loving ensemble bop they make flows with the life-giving richness of real blood.
