The success of Silver's 1963 album Song for my Father led him to further honor his father with the album, The Cape Verdean Blues; his father was born in Cape Verde. It was recorded in 1965 with the Horace Silver Quintet. Listen for J.J. Johnson on three of the tracks.
The music is not all influenced by Cape Verdean music, but there is a sense of the exotic in some of it.
Nice classic jazz by a master!
