Roland Hanna is featured on a September 1958 episode of Art Ford's Jazz Party.
He began playing classical piano as a adolescent in Michigan, but after Roland Hanna was introduced to jazz it became his main focus.
Hanna enrolled at the Juilliard School in 1955 after making the move to New York. He worked with a number of big bands during the period including Benny Goodman's.
Upon graduating in 1960 he led his own trio before joining the "Thad Jones–Mel Lewis Orchestra" remaining a permanent member until the mid-'70s.
Granted honorary knighthood by President William Tubman of Liberia in 1970 he is often referred to as 'Sir'.
