As part of Blue Note's Very Best series, pianist Horace Silver is spotlighted on eight tracks recorded between 1954 and 1966. This set includes the Silver-penned classics "The Preacher," "Song for My Father," "Doodlin'," and "The Jody Grind." Silver's backing bands include fellow Blue Note alumni Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley, Blue Mitchell, Joe Henderson, and Junior Cook, among others, making this a quality sampler for the novice at a mid-line price.
