Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: June 18, 2014
Horace Silver was a Jazz Musician of the highest calibre. Two of the most famous Jazz Tunes ever are his. "Song For My Father" and "Senor Blues." If you're familiar with Horace Silver then you're already in your personal ritual. If, somehow, you are unfamiliar with Horace Silver we urge you to research this very creative musician. Rest in peace, Horace Silver.

A funny thing happened on the way to Free Time. It started two hours early with Percussive Profiles!
  • Bernard "Pretty" Purdie to Elvin Jones "The Drum Thing." Then Peter Erskine for sixty minutes. E Ticket Ride right there. Some heavier lifting helps one appreciate a lighter load. I'm talking about duration.
  • Larger groups in this evening's Creative Music section. 8 Bold Souls, Big Trouble, David Murray, and Keefe Jackson. Small groups allow for the space and structure but larger groups seem to swell and teeter and then all the directions that music starts flying in like a blizzard or levitation.
  • The Dropper might land on your toe if you aren't ready so here's Uninvisible by Medeski Martin & Wood.
