Release Date:05/27/2014;Notes:Since it's title track provided the inspiration for Steely Dan's "Rikki, Don't Lose That Number," Song for My Father has become known as the Jazz recording that launched a thousand bad Rock records. Yet whatever pretensions Steely Dan and their legion of desperately hip imitators had shouldn't be laid at pianist Horace Silver's door: this is one of Blue Note's warmest and most satisfying collections-and that's saying something. A pioneer of the Hard-Bop style, which combined Gospel and R&B with Jazz, Silver authored many outstanding compositions, including not just "Song for My Father," but "Opus de Funk," "Nica's Dream," "Senor Blues," and "The Preacher." His quintets, which featured tenor sax and trumpet, spotlighted such up-and-coming talents as trumpeters Woody Shaw, Art Farmer, and Donald Byrd. On Song for My Father, the band features tenorman Joe Henderson, who contributed one of his own signature tunes, "The Kicker." Along with the strong quintet work, the album includes a fine trio feature for the pianist in "Lonely Woman.";Track List:1. Song for My Father;2. Natives Are Restless Tonight;3. Calcutta Cutie;4.
