The latest on Horace Silver*

LAST NIGHT, word started making its way around the jazz musician circles that Horace Silver had passed away. Early this morning an obit began floating around the internet “confirming” the rumor. Reporters have been sharing the obit/story/remembrances and one of the local jazz stations has been playing Silver’s music in tribute — but according to NPR as of 8:35 this morning, Horace Silver is still with us.

What a relief. And that’s an understatement.

Seems like a good time to get out the Horace Silver and spin it. Loud.

One of the most important building-blocks in my jazz education.

Thank you, Horace Silver.
