The beginning of a great collaboration 3 Oct 2003
By G. Schramke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This historically very important album was recorded on three different dates from 1952/1953. Art Blakey is on drums on all that occasions, so that's where the great, dynamic team between Silver and Blakey, the foundation of the "Jazz Messengers" had started. Even at this early stage of Silver's career, he was a great composer: "Opus de Funk" turned out to be very successful, even Woody Herman's band played it. "Safari" and above all "Quicksilver"(based on the changes of "Lover come back to me") are my favorites here. Horace is really superb on these tunes. Although he was influenced by Powell and Monk, he really had his own, personal style....fanstastic melody lines and really tricky left-hand stuff. Both of that mentioned tunes later were recorded as quintet-versions. Another interesting thing about theses early trio-sides are the ballad interpretations ("Prelude to a kiss" and "I remember you"): Hoarce Silver plays those lyrical tunes in a very pianistic manner, really pretty. Few years later, most of his ballads were originals with a more brooding mood.
The last two tracks "Message from Kenya" and "Nothing but Soul" are early examples of Blakey's percussion-dates, the first track also featuring Sabu Martinez, who later made a BlueNote Album of his own and collaborated with Blakey on "Orgy in Rhythm".

This is an essential collection of hard bop jazz. 11 Sep 2003
By namepeace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Horace Silver Trio" is a taut, expertly-paced and plain fun CD for any music collection. But for jazz lovers, this set features two of the architects of "hard bop": Horace Silver and Art Blakey. My favorite tracks are the wonderful "Yeah" and exquisite "Knowledge Box." This set serves as a great introduction to Horace Silver, a true jazz legend. This is a great collection at a good price.
Also check out "Blowin' The Blues Away," "Six Pieces of Silver" and "Song For My Father."

a solid outing 30 April 2001
By p dizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this set was one of mr. silver's early recordings for blue note records, a relationship that would last for nearly twenty years. the emphasis here is on hardbop, a new direction for jazz at the time. mr. silver could play the angular rhythms and speed of bebop, but added an r-n-b touch to make the music more accessible. this realy comes out in the sessions with a quintet, quartet, or what have you where the horns and piano create a gospel choir of swing. here, though, the focus is strictly on the piano. mr. silver has a deft touch and swings mercilessly. standout tracks are "quicksilver" (check out the quintet versions on art blakey's "a night at birdland" cds with clifford brown and lou donaldson), "ecaroh" and "opus de funk." each features mr. silver dancing along the keyboard and is sure to get your fingers snapping. art blakey and gene ramey provide superb support on drums and bass. now the gripe--for me the last two drum tracks are a distraction. why are they here? oh, well... this is still a stellar session. enjoy!

Good bop outing 29 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a good example of what early bop records sounded like--crisp and compact 3 minute sparks. Silver's piano playing is at the forefront, and he shines on numbers such as "Opus de Funk" and "Quicksilver." Blakey's drums thunder throughout, and the addition of Sabo Martinez on conga adds zesty flavour to "Message from Kenya" and "Safari" (my personal favourites due to their titles). Though Silver would make better music with his quintet and sextet, he is in very good form on this album.
An American Classic 12 Sep 2013
By Pam Charshee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album is an American classic. Art Blakey's "Message from Kenya" is drum improvisation masterpiece. Blakey and Silver together are a National Treasure.
