Morning Song – Opus De Funk

January 30, 2016

How did Horace Silver come up with “Opus De Funk” well over a decade before the rest of the musical world discovered funk?

I’m gonna guess it was some kind of transfiguration type experience in the studio.  With Art Blakey on drums and Percy Heath on bass, there was so much talent in the room that Silver’s trio experienced/created some kind of time warp that gave them a glimpse into the future.


(What? You’ve got a better explanation? Then put it in the comments.)
