Along with his “Songs For My Father”, Blowin’ The Blues Away constantly ranks as one of pianist Horace Silver’s finest group of original compositions. For decades, only former band-mate in the original Jazz Messengers ensemble, Art Blakey, could match Silver in ears for talent and the feeding grounds their groups became, spawning players who later became jazz giants. The group assembled here is no exception. This exact line-up would eventually stay in-tack, becoming the incarnation of the first Blue Mitchell Quintet, with Chick Corea replacing Silver. The afore-mentioned Blue Mitchell along with Junior Cook on tenor, Gene Taylor’s bass and drummer Louis Hayes help Silver deliver a fine mix of tempos including the ballad Peace and the gospel/soul-tinged Sister Sadie, both of which became jazz standards. On The St. Vitus Dance and Melancholy Mood, Silver reverts back to his early trio days with confidence and imagination.

As part of the Classic Blue Note Signature LP reissue Series this reissue was mastered and cut on Classic’s ALL TUBE MONO cutting system from tape head to cutter head and featuring authentic tip on jackets with film laminate front covers. Great record – highly recommended!
