Today’s featured video is dedicated to all the Dads out there.
Horace Silver’s “Song For My Father” was the opening track for his 1965 album of the same name, and a dedication to the pianist’s father.
Here’s Silver’s Quintet performing the tune for Jazz Omkring Midnat – Denmark TV in 1968. The line up is killer: Bill Hardman on trumpet, Bennie Maupin on tenor sax, John Williams on bass and Billy Cobham on drums.
Happy Father’s Day!
