Hank Jones on BeBop

Hank Jones demonstrates by using “How high the moon” as an example, how in the be bop era, melody of standard tunes are replaced by new melody lines, and how improvised lines relate to the harmony – the correspondence between improvised lines and the harmonies of the tune. He also relates how piano rolls were recorded by jazz greats of his time, and how those recordings were important examples for his own musical development.
