Elis Regina, on Brazilian TV in the early seventies, performing Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Aguas de Março”.

There’s an even better version of this gorgeous song on her 1972 album “Elis”. 

(As opposed to her 1973 album, “Elis”. Or her 1974 album named “Elis”. Neither is it taken from her 1977 album, “Elis”. And I definitely don’t mean her 1980 long player “Elis”. Oh, Elis, you sure made it hard on record collectors.)

Horace Silver, the hard bop master. Few artists had so long a run of classic albums as Mr. S. had in the fifties & sixties as both instigator and sideman, and precious few ever made music with so much energy and joy of invention. When the setting called for restraint and depth of feeling, though, he was unmatchable in his delicate intensity. Either way, he made the piano sing.Enjoy your retirement, Mr. Silver.
