Rest In Paradise Mr HORACE SILVER

True Story: My ace boon Greg drove me to his house to meet his pops. Im like “ok cool” as we get to the door he says “by the way my Dad is a musician”..Lo and behold..he was playing in his living room working on a beautiful piece. I saw who it was and I literally froze (im usually the one who is unfazed by anything unless it’s out of the ordinary). Greg says to me “its cool you can say hello to him” and I responded “no man, that man is working on a masterpiece..I cannot interrupt him”. Thank You for your tremendous contribution to the musical pallet which paved the way for too many to mention including myself..Thank You and Rest Well Mr Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silva aka HORACE SILVER..
