Hello flute lovees, today’s selection is from the latin jazz tradition.
Horace Silver, one of my favorite pianists, wrote this tune – Song For My Father. It has words to the effect that he wrote this song for his father who was from Brazil. The original version, by Silver’s quintet, was recorded on October 26, 1964. It has become a jazz standard and is probably Silver’s best-known composition.
Today I made a latin percussion track in GarageBand, put it in my looper, then looped a cello bass track. Finally I played flute on the melody and improvisation.
