86th birthday of Horace Silver

(Born 2 September 1928, Norwalk, Conn, US)
Mutifaceted pianist, composer and bandleader whose distinct Silverian sound and drive in the jazz repertoire are enriched by the folk music traditions of his own father’s heritage from Cape Verde

(Horace Silver Quintet, “Song for my father” [personnel: Silver, piano; Carmell Jones, trumpet; Joe Henderson, tenor saxophone; Teddy Smith, bass; Roger Humphries, drums; recorded: Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, US, 26 October 1964])
