Recorded sometime in 1963 or '64, “Lonely Woman” is off of Horace Silver's 1965 album “Song for My Father.”
Connecticut native Horace Silver pioneered the jazz genre known as “hard bop,” all the while blending gospel and rhythm and blues. Silver, born "Silva," rarely referenced his father's heritage from the Portuguese-speaking island of Cape Verde. This album's title track was one of the few songs in which that heritage was musically referenced.
