Non-jazz fans might not be aware of Horace Silver, his "Song For My Father" had a noticeable impact on pop music. The opening bass piano notes were borrowed by Steely Dan for “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number”, while the opening horn riff was borrowed by Stevie Wonder for “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing”. Earth Wind & Fire also borrowed the opening bass notes for “Clover”. Paul Weller noted that he "nicked" the chords for the Style Council’s 1984 song "Me Ship Came In!".

R.I.P.

His work with Blakey and Brown is a must-listen.
