London was kind to Jon Hendricks, who quickly established a presence there, becoming a regular contributor to radio and TV shows.

After five years the family returned to the US, and Jon found work as a jazz journalist and lecturer, but became embroiled in a legal dispute over Evolution of the Blues.
