Product Description

Amazon.com

The bad news is that Paris Blues isn't an album of new songs. The good news is that it's a slammin' 1962 live set of previously unreleased material from Silver and his long-running band, which featured trumpeter Blue Mitchell, saxophonist Junior Cook, bassist Gene Taylor, and drummer Roy Brooks. The production quality here is fairly high for a live recording of the time, with the band's hard-groovin' performances well captured. Silver tosses in licks left and right and occasionally takes a short and tasteful solo, but he's at his best here as he bangs out his patented bluesy, on-the-beat rhythms, feeding the horn players tasty riffs and rallying the band into a frenzy of upbeat hard bop. Featuring stretched-out versions of Silver classics "Filthy McNasty," "Sayonara Blues," and "The Tokyo Blues," as well as two others, Paris Blues captures this group at its high-octane best, with all the energy you'd expect from Horace Silver and his best band since leaving the Jazz Messengers. --Tad Hendrickson

For those of us who treasure the Blue Mitchel/Junior Cook edition of the Horace Silver Quintet, this recording is as essential as the unearthed goodies by Coltrane or Bird. This was recorded in a concert setting in Paris, giving a different vibe from the intimate atmosphere of the Village Gate captured in Doin' The Thing. The recording quality is very good; all instruments can be clearly heard and the balance is fine. This is highly recommended for all Horace Silver fans.

If you like Horace Silver and outstanding live jazz, this belongs in your collection. Blue Mitchell's trumpet playing is also pure and excellent. The recording quality is great as well. I have a few other disc by Mr. Silver, "Song for My Father" etc. This one is my favorite because it portrays the best of Horace's arranging , creativity and style, all done live and sounding fantastic.

This is clearly one of Horace's gems of a live performance, very tasty stuff. The musician mix produces a quality all its own.
