Born in Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1918, Henry Jones grew up in Pontiac, Michigan, with his younger bothers Thad and Elvin who also became jazz musicians.

Influenced by piano greats including Earl Hines, Fats Waller, and Teddy Wilson he began playing locally at age thirteen.

In 1944 Hank moved to New York City accepting an invitation to join Lucky Thompson at the Onyx Club.

There he would fall under the spell of leading bop musicians while playing with artists such as Coleman Hawkins, Andy Kirk, and Billy Eckstine.

He toured with Norman Granz's Jazz at the Philharmonic in 1947 followed by a stint accompanying Ella Fitzgerald ending in 1953, and would also appear on important recordings by Charlie Parker.

During the late 1970s Hank Jones became involved with the Broadway musical "Ain't Misbehavin'", based on the life and music of Fats Waller, as the show's pianist and conductor.
