Afterwards he was part of a noted New York Sextet. Roland Hanna was in semi-retirement for most of the 1980s, though he returned to music later in the decade. He is usually referred to as "Sir Roland Hanna" as he was given an honorary knighthood by President William Tubman of Liberia. Sir Roland Hanna, along with Jimmy Heath, was a professor of jazz at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College (CUNY) in Flushing, NY. Read more on Last.fm.
