We pay tribute to the life and music of Horace Silver, who passed away this week. An important and influential musician, Horace helped found the hard-bop movement with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. His music was firmly rooted in the blues, with a hard driving swing. His compositions are some of the greatest jazz standards, and we will hear from Horace himself as well as covers from Jimmy Smith and Greg Abate. We also get a phone call from Raynel Frasier to tell us about her Umoja Jazz Series of free concerts in Hartford.
