Tonight is a special Jazz Show as CITR is in the middle of it's annual Fun Drive to raise money for new equipment and keep the station happening. The Jazz Feature tonight is selections from pianist/composer Horace Silver and his Quintet. The personnel of this band (with the exception of the drum chair) was stable from 1959 through 1964.Richard "Blue" Mitchell was on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor saxophone, Gene Taylor on bass,first drummer was Louis Hayes who was replaced by Roy Brooks and one fine album had John Harris Jr. replacing Brooks.We will be featuring one or two selections from a variety of recordings that Silver and Co. did for Blue Note Records. Some selections were done in the studio and others done live. Sit back and enjoy one of the finest bands in Jazz history.
