Despite the rumors flying around a little while ago, regarding the passing of the legendary Horace Silver, all was proven to be, thankfully untrue.
Horace Silver is one of the great National Treasures, still with us and actively participating in spreading the message. Fear not.
And to let you know how powerful and vital that message is, and how powerful and vital it’s always been, here is his 1958 Newport Jazz Festival appearance. It’s been available commercially over the years, but it’s a still a great concert and one which, if you haven’t become familiar with Horace Silver, or are just getting acquainted with his groundbreaking style, you really need to check this one out.
And to reiterate – Horace Silver is alive and well and kicking and still touring. Check him out if/when he comes to your town. Buy his albums. You won’t regret it.
Enjoy and kick back.
