"Silver's Blue" is the same line-up as the latter recording minus Art Blakey (Joe Gordon, a fiery, Clifford-inspired player, replaces the lyrical Donald Byrd for bracing, biting solos on two of the seven tunes). In the liner notes specially written for this 2005 remaster, Horace makes it clear that Mobley was not merely "the middleweight champ" of the tenor saxophone but a true heavyweight and a strikingly gifted composer as well. To anyone with "patient" ears, the evidence on the recording--beginning with Hank's earthy, unforced solo on the title tune--should provide ample support for Horace's statement. In fact, Hank as usual is "right in the pocket" and ceaselessly inventive on each of these tunes, ranging from slow blues and standards to show tunes to the hard-boppish Silver gems to Mobley's own "Hank's Tune." Last but not least is the lovely, unforgettable "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," a song that may owe its status as a jazz standard to this early, lyrical and definitive peformance (it's certainly the first recording of the tune I'm familiar with).Read more ›
This Sony rootkit (The XCP rootkit) lodges itself in your Windows operating system if you so much as put the CD in your computer's drive, sends info to Sony, affects your performance, and has been exploited by hackers since 2004. Rootkits are notoriously difficult to detect and dislodge, and you have two options: Use the reputable company F-Secure's BlackLight rootkit detector, which is a free tool on their website, or use the Sony-provided removal tool, which you can get from the Sony site. Per Amazon's policy, I can't give you a link, but you can find the page by Googling "Sony XCP."
If you have/buy a CD with bar code number 827969385623, then you have a CD with a rootkit problem.
In 2005, Sony also stated that it would allow owners to swap these CDs for new non-XCP copies -- but only if you have the precise bar code above. Still, there is no information on how to do so. My hunch is that you use the Tech Support link at the Sony XCP site to email Sony, and they'll provide the Return to Manufacturer details.
Amazon itself supposedly returned all of its old XCP copies to Sony, but it's not clear to me that there really was reissue without XCP. Anyway, the small sellers on Amazon Marketplace may still have the old copies for sale, unknowingly. Who knows what bar code you'll get if you buy one? Unfortunately, this also hoses all the people trying to sell their copies here on Amazon Marketplace. If you're a seller, I urge you to specify the barcode on your product.
more audio aggressive offshoot of Bebop, was flourishing after it became a crucial
part of the jazz vocabulary, particularly on the East Coast of the United States, but
in July of 1956, the widely influential pianist- composer had made one of his finest
albums for Epic Records while he maintained his contract with Blue Note Records.
Of the two recording dates that yielded Silver’s Blue, Horace Silver would lead two
quintets that include Kenny Clark and Arthur Taylor on drums, Donald Byrd on the
trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor saxophone, and session bassist Doug Watkins, as
Silver gradually showcase another example for his creative genius that is provided
by the sweet Earthy horn solos and it’s double-drum percussion. Featuring a solid
of original compositions and several lively takes on classic standards, the track set
begins with the title track that proceed on the hip superlative classic To Bop Of Not
To Bop, Shoutin’ Out and Hank’s Tune, as well as I’ll Know and their the final track
reindition of The Night Has A Thousand Eyes, as the quintet give us another prime
example of hard bop at it’s finest. Silver’s Blue is an exceptional classic album that
still holds up quite well on many repeated plays that brings the listener a rewarding
performance abeited by time and attention as it showcase Silver’s tuneful melodies
over finger popping rhythms as he solely contributes to the deep blues and vitriolic
focal point that made this a memorable achievement which was met with his stamp
of approval. Here is another timeless achievement from his Silver’s rich legacy.
