120-gram vinyl pressing & CD in one package!
No music label represented the classic era better than Blue Note Records and now they're proudly unveiling the first group in their series of Vinyl + Bonus CD reissues of the cream of the crop classics from the Blue Note Vaults! Each LP is mastered from the original analog tapes by Ron McMaster. Each state-of-the-art CD is mastered in 24-bit by Rudy Van Gelder, the original recording engineer of these historic sessions. These releases are iconic, not just for the music inside, but also for the stunning, legendary album covers, which are works of art in themselves.
Song For My Father is an incredible record, the kind of album that only Blue Note could put out and one that will sound wonderful forever! Horace Silver is working here at the height of his powers; lyrical, free, yet also damn soulful, in a style that makes for some of the most evocative jazz-based grooves of all time. Carmell Jones plays some of his best trumpet ever here and Joe Henderson really drives the whole session home with some incredible tenor work. Other group members include Teddy Smith on bass and Roger Humphries on drums. Titles include the instantly famous "Song For My Father" plus "Que Pasa," "The Kicker" and "Calcutta Cutie."
