Sunday Sleep In – “Song For My Father” ~ The Horace Silver Quintet

On this Fathers day. Mine is very much missed.

Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silva composed this as a dedication to his Dad, John Tavares Silva. This song off his 12th album is Bossa Nova style also a dedication to his part Portuguese roots.

No doubt my favorite from Silver and no jazz catalog would be complete without it.

  2. Steely Dan “borrowed” the opening riff from Song for My Father on Rikki Don’t Lose That Number. Horace Silver, like Lee Morgan and Jackie McClean (among others): great players who never achieved mass popularity. His (and their) discography is jam packed with great music.
