75 Years of Blue Note

tue 12 aug 2014 17:00 
Composer: Horace Silver

Episode 11: Avant-garde jazz and bossa nova. In 1964 the boss of Blue Note – Alfred Lion – gave a lot of room to Avant-jazz musicians, among them was piano player Andrew Hill. In the same year “Song for my father” became the best sold record of piano player Horace Silver, partly thanks to his bossa nova title song. The album was inspired by the music from the Cape Verde Islands where his Portuguese father was born.
