As pianist, composer and bandleader, Horace Silver put the soul back into jazz. He reinvented the jazz piano, taking it from Bud Powell, infusing jazz with both funk and church music, and writing very catchy songs in that style for his band. Finger Poppin was Silvers first album with his best and longest-lasting group, a smoking band that was tight, cohesive, funky and very soulful. The quintet with Blue Mitchell and Junior Cook lasted five years and was unbeatable in soul jazz. Finger Poppin features Silver on eight of his finest compositions. Such tunes as Cookin At The Continental, Come On Home and Juicy Lucy, are heard in their original and greatest versions. With his electrifying band, Silver shows what funky jazz really is, making every note bluesy and joyful. No music collection is complete without Finger Poppin.
Mono or Stereo? Rudy Van Gelder first began recording Blue Note sessions in stereo in March of 1957. From then until an October 30, 1958 Art Blakey session, Rudy simultaneously ran both mono and stereo session tapes. The stereo presentation revealed more air, more detail and more sheer life than the mono. The mono playback was a wonderful remembrance of the old LP we all knew and loved. The stereo playback from the original masters was eerie. It was like going back in time to that day in Rudys studio. Quite simply, the stereo masters revealed more of what it was like to be there that day.
Why 45rpm? Simply...Because it sounds better! 180 gram pressings versus 200 gram? Music Matters, Lt. uses 180 gram pressings for the simple reason that they believe 180 gram weight is more than sufficient to provide a near perfect pressing. When Music Matters asked their friends at Record Technology Inc. for their recommendation to achieve the highest possible quality pressings their answer was unequivocal... go with 180 gram!
