Sound Ideas #80 - Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silver
Each jazz musician hones his/her craft during one stylistic era and some go on to participate in several others. Few, however, actually define new eras. The list of such performers is indeed very short and Horace Silver is one of the most important yet often overlooked in the grand scheme of jazz. From bebop to hard bop, the bossa nova era, soul jazz, electric jazz, spiritualism, and the post bop renaissance, he ultimately offered the definitive restatement the past, futures, and present. This hour we celebrate his contributions as interpreted by some of his most endearing fans, fellow musicians.
