Henry Jones was an American jazz pianist, bandleader, arranger and composer. Critics and musicians described Jones as eloquent, lyrical and impeccable. Born in Vicksburg, Jones moved to Pontiac, Michigan, where his father, a Baptist deacon and lumber inspector, bought a three-story brick home. One of seven children, Jones was raised in a musical family. His mother Olivia Jones sang; his two older sisters studied piano; and his two younger brothers—Thad, a trumpeter, and Elvin, a drummer—also became prominent jazz musicians.
