2019 Japanese reissue
Groovy Japanese jazz from 1962
The music of Horace Silver presented here by drummer Hideo Shiraki with almost the same approach to soul jazz you'd find on Silver's best Blue Note sides of the late 50s
Shiraki's always had a bit of a Jazz Messengers approach in his music recreating some of the grooves made famous by Horace at Blue Note, but also bringing a bit of his own flavor to the tunes as well.
Horace usually had a quintet - Hideo's group is a sextet with Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto on tenor and flute, Akira Fukuhara on trombone, and Hisaya Omata on trumpet giving the famliar tunes a bit of a twist. Great stuff.
