Enlarging the Musical Canvas

Latin jazz began almost at the inception of bebop, but Horace Silver brought in some many other rhythms and musical shapes from around the world and helped make our great American art form a universal collage.

He used Brazilian influences in Cape Verdean Blues--

And Song for My Father--

He gave us the Baghdad Blues--

The Tokyo Blues--

He played the world on his piano--and put in a musical prayer for what the world needs--
