After the success of Song for My Father and its hit title cut, Horace Silver was moved to pay further tribute to his dad, not to mention connect with some of his roots. Silver's father was born in the island nation of Cape Verde (near West Africa) before emigrating to the United States, and that's the inspiration behind The Cape Verdean Blues. ~ AllMusic

Four and a half compelling stars! This recording from "Historic Radio Broadcasts" is an important discographical addition to any jazz collection as these are live performances from the Grammy Hall of Fame recording "Song For My Father" and the recently-released "Cape Verdean Blues". “Horace Silver-Live At the Half Note" is a performance that was recorded for WABC FM radio broadcast to the local New York City FM audience and to the Armed Forces Radio Network as "Portraits in Jazz" presented by radio impresario Alan Grant. Five stars for the performances and 3 and 1/2 stars for the acceptable sound, but the bass is far in the back as expected for earlier radio broadcasts. Recorded probably late January - early February, 1966, based on Silver's commemtary between songs about their just released recording, "The Cape Verdean Blues".

Following the subtly modern bent of much of The Cape Verdean Blues, Horace Silver recommitted himself to his trademark "funky jazz" sound on The Jody Grind. Yet he also consciously chose to keep a superbly advanced front line, with players like trumpeter Woody Shaw (retained from the Cape Verdean session), altoist/flutist James Spaulding, and tenor saxophonist Tyrone Washington. Thus, of all Silver's groove-centered records, The Jody Grind winds up as possibly the most challenging.
