Horace Silver


One of the great jazz pianists, Horace Silver demonstrated seriously and decisively that ideas and strength of conception carry the day.

The band here is typical – Horace Silver w/Bill Hardman (tpt), Bennie Maupin (ts), John Williams (bs), and Billy Cobham (drums). Typical because: Once they start playing there was fire and only F-I-R-E!

RIP Horace Silver.
