The broadcast world has lost one of its most beloved personalities with the passing of Art Linkletter. A GRAMMY Award winner for Best Spoken Word Recording, he was best known as the congenial host of the popular ‘Kids Say The Darndest Things’ segment of his long-running show ‘House Party.’ The talk-show pioneer had a down-to-earth charm that delighted both children and adults, and will always be fondly remembered for putting smiles on many faces for the last five decades. Our sincere condolences go out to his family, his friends and all whom had the privilege of working with him.
The eldest surviving member of a prolific Jazz musician family which included the late drummer Elvin Jones and trumpeter/composer Thad Jones, Hank Jones continues the legacy by recording and playing at concerts and festivals around the world. As one of the few surviving Jazz greats photographed in ‘A Great Day in Harlem ‘, he has also participated in other historical events such as accompanying Marilyn Monroe when she sang ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ to the late President John F. Kennedy.

Hank Jones was a prolific jazz pianist whose accessible playing style was adaptable to many genres. A 2009 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, his career spanned more than 70 years and his dynamic resume includes recording, performing, and composing with such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, and Benny Goodman, among others. The world has lost a true jazz icon, and his legacy leaves an indelible mark on the genre to which he contributed so much. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, and fans who will forever appreciate his genius and skill.
