R.I.P. Jon Hendricks
November 25, 2017 3:15am CST
And everyone goes "Who is Jon Hendricks?" Jon was one-third of the jazz group Lambert, Hendricks & Ross in the late 50'/early 60's. I grew up listening to one of their albums subtitled 'The Hottest New Group In Jazz'. Lambert, Hendricks & Ross! came out (in the USA) the same year I was born, 1960 (although a Canadian release was issued in 1959), so I have literally listened to this since I was born. Hendricks was 96 years old...

@JolietJake my dad love the music of the 1920s. My parents arrived in the states in 1951. Dad started discovering all kinds of music and this was his favorite so he had some albums with songs like this and when he passed on just for fun I started listening to them. Then I discovered rock and roll.
