Brilliantly melodic, accessible hard bop - a 1960's classic,
This review is from: Song For My Father (Audio CD)
If you've never heard of Horace Silver, this is the place to start. One of the greatest jazz pianists of the last 40 or 50 years, Silver recorded many albums for Blue Note in their trademark hard bop style, with all their great performers including Art Blakey, Blue Mitchell, Carmell Jones,Hank Mobley etc. The eponymous title track is one of the catchiest and most memorable numbers ever recorded on the label and is on a par with Lee Morgan's Sidewinder for instant classic status, but the album is packed with wonderful music. Hard to beat at this price.
