Horace Silver, R.I.P.


Recommended Posts

Alas - I have just read of the death of truly awesome jazz giant Horace Silver, the brilliant, much-loved and long-lived pianist and composer who wrote so many wonderful jazz tunes.


"If there was ever a man who was generous, gracious and good....." (from Leon Thomas's lyrics to Silver's classic "Song For My Father").


Silver really was an amazing composer, responsible for a considerable number of tunes which are now hard bop standards; we will never see his like again.
