Passing away of legend Horace Silver
I was practising the solo on Horace Silver
's Summer in Central Park when I heard the sad news
that the great pianist, composer and bandleader himself had just passed away aged 85.
Here is a playlist just uploaded of three compositions of his that I have learned - Song for my Father
, Pretty Eyes
and Summer in Central Park
, and also, the solo I have memorised from his recording of Summer in Central Park.
