SILVER SUNDAY: THE MUSIC OF HORACE SILVER
Horace Silver is widely regarded as the father of hard bop piano. He placed heavy emphasis on the blues and even gospel roots of jazz, while working in intricate, original improvisations. His energetic playing and infectious compositions never failed to get listeners moving to the rhythm.
The Stylings of Silver, released on the Blue Note label in 1957 features performances by Silver with Art Farmer, Hank Mobley, Teddy Kotick, and Louis Hayes.
With Brad Turner on trumpet, Cory Weeds on tenor saxophone, Chris Gestrin on piano, John Lee on bass and Jesse Cahill on drums
