O’s Notes: This is a collection of songs from Horace Silver’s songbook. The performers include Houston Person (sax) playing “Juicy Lucy”, Charles Earland (B3) cooking on “Blowing The Blues Away”, Russell Gunn (t) making a statement on “African Queen” and both Joey (t) and Papa John (B3) DeFrancesco on the signature tune “Song For My Father”. They all capture the healing power that Silver brought to the stage. This is #1 in a Composer Series form High Note Records. It they stick to this level we want them all for our collection. Celebrating one composer’s work with many different artists keeps the session varied and fresh yet focused on a central theme.
