The Jody Grind
Dee Dee Bridgewater

Album: Love And Peace:
A Tribute To Horace Silver (1995)

1st verse

If you are a sailor,
A soldier, or marine,
Well Jody’s got your woman
When you’re not on the scene.

No need to worry
And to get all uptight.
Jody’s treatin’ her good tonight.

2nd verse

All you other fellas
Just treat your woman right.
‘Cause Jody’s steady hittin’
When you’re out of sight.

No need to worry
And to get all uptight.
Jody’s treatin’ her good tonight.


Horace Silver, Le père fondateur du piano Jazz Funky

Style Funky

Horace Silver révolutionne l’approche du piano jazz par son jeu extrêmement ” percussif “. Son style pianistique n’est pas sans rappeler le boogie-woogie ou le shuffle. Horace Silver est le pianiste le plus représentatif du mouvement hard-bop. Son jeu pianistique est très percussif et si son sens du swing inouï en font l’un des fondateurs du jazz “funky”, derrière la gaieté et la sophistication de ses thèmes se cache souvent un artiste possédant une intense mélancolie teinté de nostalgie. Horace Silver est le compositeur de nombreux standards de jazz, tels : Song for my Father, Sister Sadie, Soulville ou Senor Blues.

Les dates importantes de la vie de Horace Silver

  • 1928 – Horace Silver est né à Norwalk, dans le Connecticut, le 2 septembre 1928. Il étudie la musique et joue du saxophone et du piano à l’église.
  • 1950 – Dans un club de Hartford, Stan Getz (sax) le remarque. Il est engagé dans son quartette et commence à enregistrer ses premiers disques.
  • 1951 – Horace Silver s’installe à New York et travaille avec Terry Gibbs (vib), Coleman Hawkins (sax), Oscar Pettiford (b), J. J. Johnson (tb), etc. Il enregistre également avec de grands noms tels que Miles Davis (tp) et Sonny Rollins (sax).
  • 1954 – Il devient directeur musical des premiers Jazz Messengers et à partir de 1956, Horace Silver forme un quintette avec lequel il enregistre fréquemment pour Blue Note. C’est sous cette étiquette que l’on trouve l’essentiel de sa production.
  • 1980 – Horace Silver crée sa propre compagnie : Silveto Records mais celle-ci devient rapidement un échec.
  • 1993 – Il signe chez Columbia où il enregistre 2 disques
  • 1994 – Horace Silver se produit au New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival et joue avec le Silver-Brass Ensemble.
  • 1996 – De 1996 à 1999, il enregistre trois disques pour Impulse.

Un Style reconnaissable

Le fait d’avoir choisi de transposer le jeu d’instrument à vent pour bâtir son style, lui a donné une articulaton piquée et détachée. Excellent bluesman, Horace Silver possède un jeu de main gauche très fourni et très rythmique qui suffit à le faire reconnaître aisément des autres pianistes. Son jeu excitant est de ceux qui “poussent” les autres solistes.

The Jody Grind (Horace Silver)

In Bio, The Jody Grind on April 2, 2009 at 12:33 pm

Silver’s bands, like Art Blakey’s, served — and is still serving — as one of the great training grounds for young jazz musicians in the ’60s. “The Jody Grind” features a youthful Woody Shaw joining his brash trumpet sound with the fiery James Spaulding on alto and flute and the forgotten (unfortunately) Tyrone Washington, who contributes a hard-edged tenor. Silver, as usual, composed all the tunes, and nearly all of them are memorable.

Silver is a master at stripping melodies and rhythms down to their essentials. But that doesn’t mean that his tunes are simplistic. For example, the great “Mexican Hat Dance,” as the title suggests, cooks up a spicy Latin beat that is very hummable. After you listen to it a few times, though, you realize that the infectious melody is composed of some tricky twists and turns that the horn players negotiate flawlessly.

Horace Silver – The Jody Grind (Album Review) 1966

Jody Grind

  • Release Date: 1966 11 01+1966 11 23
  • Running Time: 40:40
  • Label: Blue Note

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. It’s also one of the most underappreciated; Silver’s piano playing is at its rhythmic, funky best throughout, brimming over with confidence and good cheer, and evoking memories of the classic feel of his early-’60s quintet. His compositions have a similarly bright overtone, which (as the liner notes allude to) was becoming increasingly rare in mid-’60s jazz as the fury of the avant-garde and the Civil Rights upheaval began to seep into jazz’s wider consciousness. The title cut is a playful, overlooked classic on the funky side of hard bop; Silver kicks it with a tasty groove, giving the rest of the musicians plenty to play off of. The whole group absolutely burns through “Grease Piece,” a terrific hard swinger full of smoking solo statements from just about everyone on down to drum whiz Roger Humphries. Really, the whole album is packed with great grooves and tight solos, epitomizing the best virtues of Silver’s music. For those who have digested classics like Song for My Father, Blowin’ the Blues Away, and Finger Poppin’, The Jody Grind is one of the best places to go next. Steve Huey, All Music Guide
