Newport Jazz Festival, Newport, Rhode Island, 1959
The "Horace Silver Quintet" perform at the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival.
This piece is one of many examples of the enormous and unheralded impact Latin music had on American popular music and jazz. This is what people were listening to before the Beatles and the Cuban embargo: the Horace Silver Quintet at the top of its hard bop game.
