House of Hard Bop
Pianist Horace Silver (1928) is known as one of the founders of the style of hardbop. This developed as a reaction to bebop, but the hardbop would go on to reach out to a much larger audience. To that end, elements from blues and soul music were also used. Silver became a prominent composer within this style. Today part 1, with trio recordings from 1952 and 53.
