Oxford University Press

Horace Silver Quintet's “Further Explorations” on Blue Note had a piece titled “Melancholy”; it was a slow piano trio performance. Its theme was an adept borrowing from Debussy. Silver's performance soon became a double-timed, disjointed series of interpolations of everything from bugle calls to gospel motifs, bop figures to archaic blues riffs. “Ill Wind” was given a scoring and tempo that made it into something rather flip which did hardly anything with the implicit possibilities of its melody or mood. Art Farmer was the soloist trumpeter of this recording. He was emphatically not the typical Eastern hard cooker, but a trumpeter of experience and range.
