Conversations with Christian McBride: Hank Jones

Over the past year I have had the great pleasure of producing an ongoing series of audio and video podcasts for Christian McBride’s project titled Conversations with Christian. The series was the inspiration for Christian’s new and popular Sirius XM radio show called The Lowdown: Conversations with Christian where he talks to a great artist and then performs a duet. Some of Christian’s guests include Chick Corea, George Duke, Regina Carter, Angelique Kidjo, Roy Hargrove, Sting and others. One of our first and favorite episodes features Christian with the legendary pianist Hank Jones. It was a special episode and one that I know Christian truly cherishes. So it is only fitting on the day that we have learned that Hank Jones has passed that we honor him with this beautiful video segment.
