While the pianist and bandleader recorded exclusively for Blue Note Records beginning in 1956 after he left the Jazz Messengers (the seminal band he co-founded with drummer Art Blakey) until 1979, Song for My Father stands as the milestone of his oeuvre not only for its snappy songs (most originals, no songbook standards) but also for its top-tier ensemble interplay. Silver’s pianism is unmistakable in its percussive bounce, with his light pounce on the keys fashioning chords that contribute to the hard bop rhythm. While he wasn’t a flashy virtuoso of the instrument, he was a charismatic craftsman whose mesmerizing songs afford his band mates ample room to improvise with brio
