Jazz great Horace Silver has died at the age of 85.
The pianist passed away at his home in New Rochelle, New York, where actress Ruby Dee died earlier this month (Jun14), on Wednesday (18Jun14).
Silver formed the group that was to become the Jazz Messengers with drummer pal Art Blakey in the early 1950s. The duo recorded one album together before the pianist went solo.
He recorded over 20 records for top jazz label Blue Note, including Song for My Father and The Jody Grind in the mid-1960s, while tracks like Senor Blues, The Preacher and Filthy MCNasty became instant classics.
Four of his Blue Note albums were included on the label's 100 essential jazz albums list, which was issued earlier this year (14) to mark the company's 75th anniversary.
He also enjoyed pop chart success in 1974 when Steely Dan used the opening bars of his Song for My Father in their Rikki Don't Lose That Number hit.
