Herb Silverstein – “Looking Back: Play It Again” Silver Tunes

Herb Silverstein

When the very talented Silverstein is not composing and playing jazz, traveling the world giving concerts, he is a renowned ear surgeon, inventor and philanthropist. This is actually my third review of Silverstein’s works – the two previous reviews dated June 6, 2014 and May 20, 2016. However, “looking Back” marks Silverstein’s fifteenth release and some sixty of his compositions have been used by other artists. Introduced by his son to Chick Corea in the early 1980’s, Silverstein fell in love with traditional jazz and thus began a lifelong affair with the genre. Twenty of the twenty-one tracks on “Looking Back” are covers of Silverstein’s own work, just previously released versions. Track twenty-one, “Zorro Remembered” is a new release about the death of his beloved Blue Heeler Australian Cattle Dog. As in the two previous works I reviewed, this is also traditional jazz more on the soft and mellow side. Only two musicians, Michael Ross on bass, Silverstein on piano. This is nice, soft mellow music. And as with all his compositions, expertly crafted and arranged.

Overall:  8

Sonics: 8

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
