Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A compilation of the extremely prolific cult jazz pianist Horace Silver's classic recordings for the Blue Note label, as chosen by DJ Jazztronik.

This collection, a Blue Note Japan release, is pure, out and out jazz with absolutely no concessions to the soul or funk fraternity. I bought it for the mind-blowing "African Ascension Pt.1: The Gods Of Yoruba" (from the long-ago deleted and very hard to obtain Blue Note LP "Silver 'N Percussion"), which I first heard being played by Gilles Peterson on his Worldwide radio show. Getting hold of that particular track was worth the price to me alone - I love Mister Silver's driving piano and the chanting vocals - but, as I discovered after a few plays, there is more to the album than that.

For instance, "The Sophisticated Hippie" is nearly as compelling as "The Gods of Yoruba", and the chiming, latin-esque version of the much covered "I've Had A Little Talk" (with Horace on the electric piano) is a proper slice of groovy jazz heaven. On the mellower side, the gentle vibes laden "Kathy" is an absolutely beautiful piece of music. In fact, one of my guiltiest pleasures is to slip the album on in the car and listen all the way through,a very niiiiice feeling.

A great collection - and one that leaves me eager to check out more of Horace Silver's rather extensive back catalogue.
