This CD takes music from a highly productive time in Horace Silver's brilliant career. It reflects his best, time honored tunes. Great if you have never heard of the man, or want a single source of solid Silver magic. Horace had co-founded and spent time with the Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and gone out on his own. I consider Horace Silver my "main man" and own over twenty of his albums. All tunes on this CD, with the exception of "The Baghdad Blues" and "How Did It Happen" are found on two previously issued Blue Note LPs, "Finger Poppin'" and "Blowin' The Blues Away." This music was created at the time Horace was making waves around the world. Within a few years, he would also become a big hit in Japan, Europe and on television. This CD is well worth the price! Enjoy! ~ Amazon Customer's Review
