Tribute to Horace Silver

The Colson-Vergaert Quintet is a jazz quintet founded by five young jazz musicians who met in the hallways of the Conservatory of Antwerp.

These young jazz cats love to play hard bop and on the 7th of april, they will celebrate one of their favourite composers in the genre: Horace Silver.

Sister’s legacy as a composer may be greater than as a pianist, because his works, many of which are now jazz standards, continue to be performed and recorded worldwide. As a composer, he led a return to an emphasis on melody.

In 1954, pianist Horace Silver teamed with drummer Art Blakey to form a cooperative ensemble that would combine the dexterity and power of bebop with the midtempo, down-home grooves of blues and gospel music. The results are what would become known as hard bop, and The Jazz Messengers were one of the leading exponents of this significant era in jazz history. In all, the music Horace Silver is the very definition of a style that dominated jazz in the 1950s and ’60s.


As Art Blakey would say it: ‘Take of your shoes and have a ball !’
