Horace Silver – Silver ‘N Brass

null

Great stuff — a lot better than you’d think, and a masterful set of soul jazz tunes! Horace’s piano is augmented by a larger group here, which, despite the “brass” in the title, is actually a fairly decent batch of musicians, with a wide range of instrumentation. The group includes Bernard Purdie, Jerome Richardson, Bobby Bryant, Bob Cranshaw, and Oscar Brashear — and titles include “The Sophisticated Hippie”, “Dameron’s Dance”, “Barbara”, and “Kissin’ Cousins”. And, although not from Horace’s classic 60′s period, the record (like all of his Blue Notes) is not without some very nice moments!

little preview:

    Oscar Brashear very possibly plays in the brass section, but the solos are the always excellent Tom Harrell and the late great Bob Berg.

    Bernard Purdie, if its him, really swings on the first track.

    Thanks for the dl.
