The legendary pianist, composer and band leader Horace Silver
sadly passed away yesterday, aged 85
. His compositions, recordings and amazing piano performances have made him one of the most important pianists and composers in jazz and although it is true he had a good innings, everyone in jazz is sad about this.
We hope you rest in peace Horace, and a big thanks for all the great music.
Watch me playing three Horace Silver tunes
, recorded as a tribute.
