As pianist, composer and bandleader, Horace Silver put the soul back into jazz. He reinvented the jazz piano, taking it from Bud Powell, infusing jazz with both funk and church music, and writing very catchy songs in that style for his band. Finger Poppin’ was Silver’s first album with his best and longest-lasting group, a smoking band that was tight, cohesive, funky and very soulful. The quintet with Blue Mitchell and Junior Cook lasted five years and was unbeatable in soul jazz. Finger Poppin’ features Silver on eight of his finest compositions. Such tunes as “Cookin’ At The Continental,” “Come On Home” and “Juicy Lucy,” are heard in their original and greatest versions. With his electrifying band, Silver shows what funky jazz really is, making every note bluesy and joyful. No music collection is complete without Finger Poppin.’
