Horace Silver Quintet Song For My Father Vinyl LP

Remastered and Reissued As Part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign

As a pianist, composer and bandleader, Horace Silver practically originated and certainly was the symbol of funky jazz. His playing looked beyond Bud Powell to church music, the blues and his Cape Verde musical heritage. Silver's songs were catchy, soulful and consistently stuck in one's memory. And his bands, featuring a trumpet and tenor front line, always had a sound that was definitive of hard bop.

But even with Silver's string of brilliant recordings for Blue Note, Song For My Father stands apart from the rest. The title cut became a much-covered standard as soon as this record was released, Joe Henderson's "The Kicker" also caught on, and every selection (including his own passionate ballad "Lonely Woman") is filled with Horace Silver's charm, wit and soul. No music collection is surely complete without this jazz classic!
