The Horace Silver Ensemble serves as a semester-long examination of the music of one of the most prolific and influential composer/bandleaders in the history of jazz - pianist Horace Silver (1928-2014), along with the music of some of the distinguished musicians associated with Horace over the years of his groups, such as Kenny Dorham, Joe Henderson, and Tom Harrell. Horace’s group was one of the two major jazz “finishing schools” in the era of the 1950s through the 1990s (especially in the ‘60s through the ‘80s), the other being Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
