A true classic, this CD found pianist Horace Silver and drummer Art Blakey co-leading the Jazz Messengers; Silver would leave a year later to form his own group. Also featuring trumpeter Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley on tenor, and bassist Doug Watkins, this set is most notable for the original versions of Silver's "The Preacher" and "Doodlin'," funky standards that helped launch hard bop and both the Jazz Messengers and Silver's quintet. Essential music. ~ 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".

Recorded in 1972, a decade removed from the last of Horace Silver's classic quintet recordings, In Pursuit of the 27th Man has never been regarded as one of the pianist's prime releases, which likely explains why Blue Note took this long to make it available on CD. But the album, which moves gracefully between quartet performances featuring vibraphonist David Friedman and quintet numbers featuring the young Brecker brothers (Randy on trumpet and Michael on tenor saxophone), has its distinctive charms. While maintaining the crispness and sense of adventure with which he has always signed his music, Silver and bands ease through some of his most appealing melodies. Songs such as Weldon Irvine's "Liberated Brother" have the early '70s written all over them, but even in those cases their light-handed lyricism and boppish vitality keep them fresh. Friedman's idiosyncratic sound adds a sense of mystery to the music, which, with Bob Cranshaw on electric bass and Mickey Roker on drums, never lacks for a solid and soulful center.
