Format: Audio CD
This was Silver's second LP as a band-leader, and his first for Blue Note. It features the great hit Señor Blues, but in fact every track on this CD is great. It is interesting that there is such a veriety in rhythm, displaying Silver's great talents as a composer, and yet somehow the album is very coherent. This CD edition, like all the Rudy Van Gelder remastered albums is well done ; not only for the welcome bonus tracks but also for the liner notes. You have the original liner notes by Leonard Feather, and then some additional notes by Blumenthal for this CD, putting the album in its historic context. Great CD.

This early Horace Silver Quintet album comprises two sessions from 1956 & 1958.
Tracks 1-8(mono) were recorded on November 10, 1956 with Silver(piano), Hank Mobley(tenor sax), Donald Byrd(trumpet), Doug Watkins(bass) & Louis Hayes(drums).
Tracks 9-10(stereo) were recorded on June 15, 1958 with Silver(piano), Junior Cook(tenor sax), Donald Byrd(trumpet), Gene Taylor(bass) & Louis Hayes(drums) with a vocal by Bill Henderson on 'Senor Blues'.
All ten memorable tracks feature Silver originals with the highlights being 'Senor Blues'(all three versions), 'Cool Eyes', 'Camouflage' and the trio track 'Shirl'.
This RVG Edition(2000) of 'Six Pieces of Silver' contains almost an hour of soulful and swinging hard bop that still sounds fresh over 50 years later.

I bought this because I wanted to hear again how Donald Byrd and Hank Mobley fitted in with Horace Silver. Neither was the raunchiest of soloists, to say the least. Donald Byrd did not play with Pepper Adams for years for nothing. The latter's gruff attack contrasted well with Byrd's, at this stage, still Brownie-like sound. Horace Silver's ensemble writing suits Byrd's attack better than it does Mobley. Tippin', on which Junior Cook replaces Mobley, says it all, though I dare say Hank was the better saxophonist. Strokes and folks...
This is good music, wherein Donald Byrd serves Horace Silver's style better.

I am a Horace Silver fan. I consider him a masterful composer, pianist and bandleader but this album fails to cut the mustard for me. It is his first album recorded as leader (1956) although he had made a number of recordings when he was a "Messenger". He appears with ex- "Messengers" Donald Byrd (t) and Hank Mobley (tnr), although ng with Doug Watkins (b) and a youthful Louis Hayes (d). Apart from the popular Senor Blues, the other tunes fail to engage me. Is it the tunes or musicians? I admire Hank Mobley, and his stand-out albums that he is to produce (Roll Call and Soul Station) will be superb, but he doesn't seem to gel here; replacement Junior Cook (heard on two later bonus tracks) seems a better fit. Likewise Blue Mitchell, on later albums, fits better than Byrd.
Thus to my mind this has merit mostly as an historic document: Silver's first recording as a leader.Later albums are better.
