Rest in Peace, pianist, Horace Silver one of the founding members of the Jazz Messengers. Sometimes referred to as the grandfather of jazz blues, funk, and/or hard bop Silver's music helped created within me a love for jazz. He will be missed as the jazz greats of yesterday don't appear to be being replaced as they die off.

Horace Silver walks among the noble entities of creation eternally and shall never be forgotten. He will continue to bestow his magical grooves and musical concepts for all of humanity past the physical existence of all generations to come.

Tony; it is, in my view, well worth getting to know jazz, even if you don't play it. I think that as one expands their knowledge of jazz, their appreciation for music deepens.
And in my view, an outstanding place to start is Miles Davis' album, Kind of Blue from 1959. Through that door lies a rich and infinite world of musical exploration.
