Hank Oliver Jones Pleased To Meet You "Their performances shine even brighter than the rare nature of this recording. Both men have the virtuosity to turn even an innocuous repertoire into something special, and thankfully don't have to here... This is a truly rare record - a moving document in modern music that recalls the majesty of the past and the promise of tomorrow." -All About Jazz
